Sabal Etonia. Scrub Palmetto.

The Sabal Etonia is a slow growing small shrub like palm reaching between 3-4ft in height. Growing an underground (subterranean) trunk, it keeps many of it's vital parts below the frost line. Very occasionally it can have a trunk above ground. 
A very attractive palm with usually between 4-7 stiff costapalmate leaves light green in colour. White marginal fibres appear as the palm matures. Petioles are unarmed.  
This is a great ornamental palm and is perfect for under-planting taller palms, giving interest and variety to your garden.
