saw palmetto, Serenoa repens

Saw palmetto is a very cooperative palm tree. It's short like me. So it's the only one I have a decent image of. Saw palmetto trunks are never more than about shoulder high. Other than this, palms are a special challenge. You won't see many of them here. It's just too hard to travel with extension ladders. And that's too bad. It's interesting to see such ordinarily pretty flowers on what are, to me, such exotic and different plants. Saw palmetto grows in AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, SC, and TX. St. Lucie Co FL, 1/27/13
