Palmetto trees look out of place in Greenville and other cities closer to the Blue ridge mountains, in my view. Same thing with cacti.

I was told years ago that some strange thermal phenomenon that kept Anderson a good bit warmer than Greenville during a conversation about palm trees specifically.

Are you sure those trees you see here in the upstate are actually Palmetto's? I thought those were Windmill Palms as they can better deal with the climate here in the upstate. A real Palmetto will probably not survive the winter.

I was looking at the trees yesterday around the Waves car wash in Simpsonville trying to figure out if they were Palmettos or Windmills. Anyway the leaves on the branches were 50% brown. Can't be from lack of water with rain we have been getting lately. Maybe it's the winter cold.
