Re: Sabal Palmetto
I'd like the one I have to flower and produce seed before it dies. I'd like to then try and germinate a few of those. It's definitely been very, very tough. Its mother tree, from what I was told, is/was in Port Orange, Florida. So, it's no special ecotype or strain. If only the mama tree could know where one of her babies has been for the last 13 years!
