Saw palmetto is generally a plant that is horizontal. It branches under the soil area or it operates pretty much across the surface. The leafy extremities for the branches have reached or simply just under the area. It commonly types thickets that are low. In certain places it does occur in intricate systems of pretty much constant colonies. Thickets can achieve a height of 9 10 foot.
Each leaf is fairly long, each petiole reaching 3 feet in length or even more. Leaf petioles have actually 2 sharply serrated, sawteeth like sides, hence the true title associated with plant. The leaf blades are palmate, with 30 or even more portions which fan out of the palman (undivided area of the leaf). The hastula (a protuberance of this petiole during the foot of the blade) does occur on both relative edges associated with leaf blade and doesn’t expand throughout the leaf blade. (mais…)
