Re: Silver Saw Palmetto

i think they will probably do all right for you, andrea, although i think i would plant them in a protected spot. they're indigenous to florida's east coast and thrive a good ways north of the everglades. there are acres of them growing wild as far north as canaveral. they sure are pretty when they get big enough for the color to fully develop.

Jim-maybe you can give me some info on this. I bought 2 Silver Saw Palmettos
this weekend after the nursery owner assured me that they would be hardy here.
Then I looked them up and found that they grow in the everglades and can take
cold down to 20 degrees. Occasionally, RARELY, it might get down to 19-17
degrees for brief periods of time. Do you think I can keep these guys outside
or suck it up and keep them in pots? I'm bummed because I really wanted them
outside. They are very cool and although small I know palms will grow at a
decent rate under irrigations.
