Also known as a Sabal Palmetto.
As the state tree of Florida and South Carolina and with abundant plantings in Eastern North Carolina, most folks are familiar with this Southern favorite. Though less cold-hardy in colder areas, Sabals can succeed with proper placement and some Winter protection. Cooper-Payne Tree Farms has a wide selection of pot grown Sabals which virtually eliminates transplant shock and provides you with a growing tree with a fully developed root system more suitable for colder climate transplanting.
Location: well drained soil in sunny southern exposure. Protection from Western Winds a plus
Hardiness: thought to be hardy generally to about 7° F. After establishment, trees have been known to handle occasional bouts of much colder temperatures
