Sabal Miamiensis. Miami Palmetto Palm.

The Sabal Miamiensis 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.  
A very attractive robust palm with a compact crown of usually between 3-6 stiff deeply costapalmate leaves evenly green in colour. Its inflorescenses have creamy white flowers which droop quite low, not standing up tall. Closely related and looks similar to the Sabal Etonia, however its fruits are larger. 
This is an exceptionally rare palm and virtually extinct in habitat. Slow growing it will tolerate poor soils and coastal exposure
