S. repens grows very well in Augusta, GA. It much prefers sand and should be planted up to its neck when it is taken out of a container. It is a slow starter when first transplanted, but grows very fast after establishment. The flowers smell great, but the seeds smell horrible...for only a few days. S. repens is called Saw Palmetto for a reason: wear gloves and a heavy long sleeved shirt when pruning, unless you want tribal scaring on your hands and arms.
