Sabal pumos has huge seeds and the young leaves are undivided and quite attractive. It is growing in Augusta, GA and St. Marys, GA on the coast. Hails from NW Mexico and should work as well as Sabal rosei.

not much written about this Latin American palm... not unique in it's looks, and not sure what differentiates it from other species... but seen seedlings of it growing fine in southern California, though sure there are even larger and faster growing versions in Florida (much better climate for Sabal palms).
