Saw palmetto is generally a plant that is horizontal. It branches under the soil area or it runs just about over the area. The leafy extremities for the branches are in or simply under the area. It commonly types thickets that are low. In certain places it happens in intricate systems of just about colonies that are continuous. Thickets can achieve a height of 9 10 legs.
Each leaf is fairly long, each petiole reaching 3 feet in length or higher. Leaf petioles have actually 2 sharply serrated, sawteeth like sides, therefore the true name of this plant. The leaf blades are palmate, with 30 or maybe more sections which fan right out of the palman (undivided part of the leaf). The hastula (a protuberance associated with the petiole in the root of the blade) does occur on both edges for the leaf blade and will not expand within the leaf blade. This might be a distinguishing that is important with this genus.
The flowers are dioecious and search on branched stalks that protrude a similar distance as that of this leaves. These plants are fragrant.
Fruit is a black colored or bluish black colored drupe that is adjustable in dimensions and form.Read More
