Sabal palmetto 'Lisa' is a seed strain of the Southeast US native palmetto palm, first discovered in 1998 in southwest Florida, as a patch of three specimens by palm nurseryman, Robert Riefer, and later named after his wife, Lisa. Sabal 'Lisa' is most certainly a polyploid mutant, since it produces much thicker, and less divided, less costapalmate, less filiferous leaves than typical Sabal palmetto. In propagation trials by palm guru Scott Zona, it produces 68% true to type offspring, and the remainder typical Sabal palmetto. With age, Sabal palmetto 'Lisa' will eventually reach 30' in height. Since these are seed grown, it is impossible to predict mature size of each, but we are pleased to share this rarely available cultivar.
