Positive palmtodd On Jun 23, 2011, palmtodd from North Fort Myers, FL wrote:

A rare mutated form of Sabal Palmetto with a different leaf structure than the normal Sabal Palmetto. The leaves are thicker, and much more sturdy than regular Palmetto leaves. Two of these trees are located in Fort Myers at Luckett Rd/I-75 but they are about to be destroyed or transplanted because of construction in the area.

Still rare in cultivation, due to the fact that there currently isn't much seed available. Hopefully a popular palm in the future.

(when grown from seed there will be about 70% "Lisa" seedlings and the rest will be regular Palmetto seedlings, & takes around 3 years to positively ID the seedlings.)


-update- the palms were successfully transplanted into the palm park downtown Fort Myers on MLK
