Dig into the details


The Sabal Minor Palm, also known as the Dwarf Palmetto or Blue Palmetto, is a small, cold-hardy palm tree native to the southeastern United States. This slow-growing, evergreen palm is highly adaptable and low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for various landscape settings.

The Overall Plant

The Sabal Minor Palm is a trunkless or short-trunked palm tree that typically grows to a height of 5 to 6 feet and a width of 4 to 5 feet. It is hardy in USDA zones 7 through 10 and can tolerate temperatures down to 0°F (-18°C) with little to no damage. This palm thrives in full sun to partial shade and can adapt to a wide range of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils. Its ability to withstand salt spray and occasional flooding makes it an excellent choice for coastal landscapes.

The Foliage

The Sabal Minor Palm is known for its striking, fan-shaped leaves or fronds that form a dense, low-growing crown. Each frond can grow up to 3 feet in length, with numerous slender, divided leaflets radiating from a central stem. The blue-green to dark green foliage creates an attractive contrast in the landscape and provides year-round interest.

The Flowers

The Sabal Minor Palm produces small, fragrant, creamy-white flowers in spring or early summer, followed by the formation of clusters of round, black fruit. The fruit, which is about 1/4 inch in diameter, ripens in late summer to early fall and is a valuable food source for birds and other wildlife.

In addition to its ornamental value, the fruit of the Sabal Minor Palm has been historically used by Native Americans for various purposes, such as making jelly and other food products.
