This is a new and updated native range map for the plant Sabal minor "Dwarf Palmetto," it is a species of palm tree native to the U.S.A.

Native to Virginia? Yes, the Sabal minor is indeed native to South Eastern Virginia, but it is rare to see them there. In the area, they only exist in small pockets, so there are no known forests that have a very high population of Sabal minor in Virginia. So don't expect to see one on your walk in any area of the native range that is included, but if you do, you got to see something most people do not get to see in the area! Here is a quote from the Virginia Cooperative Extension, "Part of the Dwarf Palmetto’s native range includes the extreme southeastern portion of Virginia."

It's one of my favorites, they completely cover the forest floor of some of the swamps around here. Somehow they manage to survive the feral hogs.

A lovely looking palm imo. I've got one that has survived repeated munching by pesky sheep. I wish I had thought to plant it in the swamp, as they are thirsty.

The Sabal Minor is, as shown on the map, native to Austin Texas, too. It grows really well there, although it is a very slow growing palm and doesn't get very big. Grew them in my back yard there, despite the drought (at the time.) They like lots of water, but are adapted to survive without much when they have to.
