How to Grow

Saw Palmetto Green is best grown in full sun to partial shade and in well-draining soil. It is drought-tolerant once established but will require regular watering during its first year of growth. It can also be grown in containers.

Care Tips

Saw Palmetto Green is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal care once established. It should be fertilized once a year in the spring with a slow-release fertilizer. Pruning is not necessary, but damaged or dead leaves can be removed as needed.


Saw Palmetto Green is commonly used in landscaping as a focal point, as a border plant, or in mass plantings. Its leaves are also used in the production of palm frond crafts.

Planting Tips

Saw Palmetto Green should be planted at the same depth as it was in its container. When planting in a container, choose a pot that is at least twice the size of the plant's root ball. Mulching around the base of the plant can help retain moisture and suppress weeds.


Saw Palmetto Green is a low-maintenance plant that requires little attention once established. Regular watering during its first year of growth will help it establish a strong root system. Fertilizing once a year in the spring with a slow-release fertilizer will provide the plant with the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Pests and Diseases

Saw Palmetto Green is relatively pest and disease-free. However, it can be susceptible to scale insects and spider mites. These pests can be controlled with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Overwatering or poorly draining soil can lead to root rot, so it is important to ensure that the plant is not sitting in standing water.
