Arecaceae > Sabal bermudana var. ,

Sabal bermudana, commonly known as the Bermuda Palmetto, is one of 15 species of palm trees in the genus Sabal and is endemic to Bermuda.

Sabal bermudana grows up to 25 m ft in height, with the occasional old tree growing up to 30 m ft in height, with a trunk up to 55 cm in in diameter. It is a fan palm (Arecaceae tribe Corypheae), with the leaves with a bare petiole terminating in a rounded fan of numerous leaflets. Each leaf is 1.5 - 2 m long, with 45-60 leaflets up to 75 cm in long. The flowers are yellowish-white, 5 mm in across, produced in large panicles up to 2.5 m ft long, extending out beyond the leaves. The fruit is a deep brown to black drupe about 1 cm in long containing a single seed. It is extremely salt-tolerant and is often seen growing near the Atlantic Ocean coast in Bermuda, and also frost-tolerant, surviving short periods of temperatures as low as -14 °C.
