Native to the Southeast United States, the Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) produces clustering trunks that often spread underground before emerging above the soil line. Though typical heights might reach six to eight feet, much taller specimens are not uncommon. Saw Palmettos are highly adaptable to numerous soil conditions, thrive in direct seaside plantings and can withstand extreme drought. In habitat, they are often subject to wildfires, but regenerate new leaves shortly afterward. Tolerant of freezing temperatures, the Saw Palmetto can be found in both green and silver forms.
