Silver Saw Palmetto
Incredible Color & Tropical Feel
The Silver Saw Palmetto palm is sure to catch your eye, especially growing in a residential landscape in colder climates. One of the most cold-hardy palms available, the Silver Saw Palmettos can grow to heights of 70–80 ft. in the wild, and a few can be spotted as far north as Washington D.C.
And not only are they cold hardy, but you get a unique silver color that few ornamental trees can produce.
These are the majestic palms that you see planted in boulevard medians, lining promenades along the beach and near coastal dunes along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Their erect posture is topped with a canopy of huge fan-style leaves growing directly out of the trunk. Each cluster is made up of close to 80 individual leaflets, each 1–2 in. wide.
In June, the palm bursts into bloom with five-foot flower stalks covered with creamy white flowers. Tiny black fruits replace the white flowers toward the end of the season.
The Silver Saw Palmetto is renowned for its adaptability. It can survive hurricane-force winds, standing salt water, cold, you name it—why it can be the last thing standing after a hurricane! If you’re a novice in need of a cold-tolerant palm, the Silver Saw has your name written all over it—it can survive most anything!
And, just to make sure that your palm gets the best possible start in your landscape, Brighter Blooms ships only the healthiest palms with established roots. It’s ready to plant the minute you open the box. Find a partly sunny to sunny location with sandy soil to plant the carefree Palmetto, and you’re all set.
Once your Silver Saw Palmetto tree is planted in its new home, you’ll be singing Summer Breeze the rest of the summer.
