Sabal minor, commonly known as the Dwarf Palmetto or Bush palmetto, is one of about 14 species of palmetto palm (Arecaceae, genus Sabal). It is native to thesoutheastern United States, ranging from Florida north to eastern North Carolina, and west to eastern Oklahoma and widespread along the gulf coast through Louisiana into eastern Texas. Although it is mainly found in the southern states, it is one of the only palms that can stand somewhat cooler temperatures, and has been cultivated as north as southcentral Pennsylvania. It is one of the most frost tolerant palms, surviving temperatures as low as -18°C (among North American palms, second only to the Needle Palm Rhapidophyllum hystrix). Its cold-hardiness is variable throughout its range with the Oklahoma native population believed by many to be the cold-hardiest population. This palm may be hardy to zone 6B.

Sabal minor is one of the most hardy plams able to survive winters in temperate climates like the northern USA and parts of Europe.[1] It is grown by gardeners and landscapers for this reason. Often those grown in cultivation are strains from the western end of its range in Oklahoma and Texas. One popular strain is 'McCurtain', named after McCurtain County, Oklahoma where they are native. These tend to remain trunkless and smaller than those from warmer areas. This palm has reportedly been grown as far north Vanvcouver BC on the West Coast and Connecticut/Long Island, NY on the East Coast of North America. There is a very healthy specimen outdoors at the National Botanical garden in Washington D.C.
