The Palmetto is the typical palm of the southeastern United States. From
the avenues of grand old Charleston down to the shopping malls of Miami,
this handsome tree is seen on every corner. Although it may not be as
elegant as a Coconut or Royal palm, for temperate and subtropical areas
with warm summers it really is the ultimate choice. Extremely resistant
to heat, wind, cold, drought and neglect, it always keeps up a good shape.
