The Cabbage palmetto (Sabal palmetto) is the most northerly and abundant of the native tree palms. Other names sometimes used are Carolina palmetto, common palmetto, palmetto, and cabbage-palm. This medium-sized unbranched evergreen palm commonly grows on sandy shores, along brackish marshes, in seacoast woodlands of Southeastern United States and throughout peninsular Florida. It can tolerate a broad range of soil conditions and is often planted as a street tree. Abundant fruit crops provide a good supply of food to many kinds of wildlife. It is exceedingly drought tolerant, salt tolerant, cold hardy, pest and disease free, the Sabal Palm is a foolproof choice for any Florida landscape. It thrives on available rainfall and the meager nutrients found in Florida’s sandy soils, making it a perfect choice for sustainable landscapes. This resilient tree endures fire, flood, freeze, and hurricane, and recovers remarkably well after being dug from the wild, carried across the state, and then planted into harsh urban sites. The heart of the palm (the bud of unopened leaves) has traditionally been eaten as “Swamp Cabbage,” hence the names “Cabbage Palm” or “Cabbage Tree.” Seminole and Miccosukee Indians refer to the Sabal Palm as the “tree of life,” for it has provided them shelter, food, tools, utensils, and fiber for baskets and netting. The Sabal Palm often hosts other plants in its “boots,” including Strangler Fig, Wild Grape, Virginia Creeper, and a variety of beautiful threatened and endangered ferns. The plants are shipped bare root.

Growing Instructions for Cabbage Palm Seedlings


The seedlings can be planted in a pot in cool regions. In warm regions they can be planted outdoors. 1. Fill several pots with drainage holes in the bottom with a well-drained potting mix such as peat/perlite, sandy soil or a sandy/potting soil mix. 2. Plant the seedlings in the pot. 3. Water the seedlings. Keep the soil moist but not wet. 4. Put the pots in a warm, sunny location. Sabals can grow in the sun or shade but they do better in full sun.
