Is this a Sabal minor?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

found this nice specimen at a small botanical garden I was visiting a few weeks ago. It's just named Sabal minor.  Could this really be a S. minor or maybe it's another Sabal?

Added a picture of the whole plant and a detail of a leave.

Thanks Eckhard

I don't think that's a Sabal palmetto, it is way to small to be seeding if it was. Could it be a Sabal bermudana? I am not very familiar with this palm so my knowledge on it is very limited, so I may be way off.
