This seed strain of the southeast native Sabal palmetto was collected by retired City of Raleigh horticulturist Noel Weston on a trip through Tifton, Georgia after the 1980s freeze that killed most of the palmettos. Noel found an undamaged specimen at a Tifton hotel and collected seed. We gathered our seed from an original offspring, which has been growing in Raleigh since the early 1990s. Expect a 10' trunk in 15 years. In Zone 7, we recommend growing the plant to a larger size before planting it into the ground, or plant early and mulch very well until it gets established.
