This palm has huge leaves and huge seeds. It grows well and makes a dramatic statement. Very distinctive.

This is one of the largest Sabals and though slow here in So Cal, makes an impressive garden statement. Most of the Sabals tend to look alike, so other than size, this one is fairly typical. They all have enormous costapalmate leaves (palmate with a marked curve and V shape to them).
