Somebody has a nice house under this Palmetto. I ignore it so that my husband won’t notice and destroy it. Palmettoes are a scrub palm. He doesn’t like them either and removes them with his tractor, I have a few, including this one, that are “mine”. They should need absolutely no care, but every year they become smaller and less, instead of bigger and more. My husband says it is the his dog who is doing the pruning.
