Thank goodness for your photos - what a funny name for a palm. :)


Palms are so neat and so useful too. It is amazing how many different species there are. Great post :)


What an useful tree ! No cabbage palms here but spruces and larches. Soon tre next ones'll be beautiful with their new pink cones. I'll put photos of them in my blog.

strange name for a palm. It is a good looking tree and seemingly very useful. Thanks for the info.


I think we have these palms grown in the Phils. We make use of every part of the tree. Not sure, if you call it a spine, but we use that to make broom sticks!


I was very interested in your info about the sabal palmetto palm. I planted a number of them in my front yard in Queensland, Australia along with a number of other kinds and those ones are doing the best of any. They are not yet as tall as the ones you have in your photo. I wanted a tropical palm 'forest' and after 8 years they all look great.

That's beautiful! We have less exotic-looking ones in our region. I like the thatched roof too.


Beautiful palms. I like how the thatched roof looks, and last for a long time.


just like on 'Survivor'. :)


What a beautiful tree and I love the basketweave


What a neat looking trunk and I am reading a book about the early natives in Florida so now I know what they are talking about...thanks for adding to my knowledge base Sallie and for your kind comments..Michelle


That's a very beautiful palm and I love the thatched roof on the shelter.


I like how full these palms are
the palm trees I'm familiar with look like Q-tips :)

Palms give me that magical feeling that I am visiting paradise!


Hey! thanks for visiting my blog earlier :) I like all the different types of palms! Have you ever noticed the difference between the ones north of Tampa Bay and south of Tampa Bay? I think it is the difference between zones 9 and 10, but the ones to the south have green trunks sometimes and are smoother. I need to get a book that identifies them. I did not know you could EAT the fruit of the sabal palm!
