Saw Palmetto Palm, Serenoa repens
This native palm is very slow growing and seen in large clumps throughout Florida’s woodlands. It is also widely used in commercial landscaping to meet mandatory, native County Code requirements. The leaves are green or bluish-grey in color and have short, saw-tooth thorns along the stems of each frond. They produce flower stalks among the leaves which bear fruit/seeds. These berries are harvested and sold to manufacture medicinal tonics well known for health remedies.
