Serenoa repens Georgia Silver
Silver Saw Palmetto
This is a really special and exciting form of this popular american palm.
They are from a relict population in central Georgia. They are wild, occurring
on isolated sand dunes where ancient beaches used to be near the "fall
line". They are a full sized glaucous plant. They are rarely available
as they only set fruit heavily following warm winters. These are the most
northerly, most inland population ever found, and extremely cold hardy.
A unique opportunity, not to be missed!
The most choice of all the many different varieties of Serenoa, this
superb form has large silver leaves, elevating it from the 'Florida weed'
to something very special indeed. Additionally, it grows further north
and further inland than most other Serenoa populations and, for the cold-hardy
palm enthusiast, it is infinitely preferable to the regular 'tropical'
form from down south. A limited number of seeds is available annually
from this small population only, and they are not for sale from anyone
