CABBAGE PALM

This lone palm stood out along the Sopchoppy River while I was kayaking past on a cool, gray winter day.

Sabal palmetto - CABBAGE PALM

Florida's state tree is found throughout much of the state and is common in savannas, hammocks and swamps. The range extends through mostly coastal areas from Louisiana into North Carolina.
Cabbage palms are a straight-trunked tree growing to about 60 feet tall. The leaves are fan shaped, 3 to 6-1/2 ft. long, deeply divided, shiny green above and gray-green below with numerous threads hanging from the segment margins. The petioles are smooth and up to 6-1/2 ft. long. The junction of the petiole and leaf (hastula) is long and v-shaped. Flowers are white, tiny and numerous in large branching inflorescences. Fruits are round and black in long drooping clusters.
The round shape formed by this tree's leaves is the natural shape of a healthy cabbage palm. To learn about proper palm pruning, please watch How to prune a palm with Dr. Doug Caldwell from the University of Florida
