    Does anyone know what those beautiful fan-shaped plants are? They are awsome.

    If anything is going to be poached...its YOU.

    You are correct Bruce. I should have known that. That was somewhere in the recesses of my brain.

    "The saw palmetto or Serenoa repens is also known as palmetto scrub or cabbage palm. This plant is indigenous to the southeastern United states and the islands of the West Indies. Its natural habitat ranges from as far north as South Carolina and west into Texas. Currently the main supplier of saw palmetto is the state of Florida with the harvesting of wild crops occurring mostly in the central part of the state.

    The saw palmetto plant is best described as a palm shrub. The plants grow in large colonies of a hundred or more. Each plant produces 3 to 7 fan shaped leaves which grow to about two feet in width. In the spring the plant produces small white flowers which produce the fruit of the saw palmetto, a small berry. The berries are harvested in the fall after they mature."

    Darned invasives. Call the Minutemen and maybe they'll guard the border to keep any more palmettoes from coming north.

    I'm kinda hoping I can find some here. And in fact...I'm thinking there might be some in the park I go to. This calls for tall rubber boots and some exploring!
