The sabal palm, or cabbage palm, is native to Florida and coastal regions of North and South Carolina and Georgia, and is the state tree of both South Carolina and Florida. The name “cabbage palm” comes from its edible immature leaves, or “heart,” which has a cabbage-like flavor. Branched inflorescences produced during the late spring months contain thousands of tiny, creamy-white, fragrant flowers that attract bees.
