Dwarf Palmetto is one of the hardiest palms in the
world. Use it in mixed borders or hedges. This shrub
is also especially well-suited for massing around the base of a
large live oak, or other shady places.
The difference between Dwarf Palmetto and Saw Palmetto (Serenoa
repens) are the leaves. Dwarf Palmetto leaves have a
short midrib. Another interesting fact about Dwarf Palmetto
is its trunk. It is an optical illusion; it appears that the
plant is trunk-less, but there is one - it is underground.
