Premier Palm Trees of the Southeast

In 1755, Colonel William Moultrie was asked to design the flag for South Carolina troops to use during the American Revolutionary War. The design he came up with had the blue of the militia's uniforms, along with the crescent from the emblem on their caps. In the 16 hour battle on June 28, 1776, the flag was shot down, but raised again by Sergeant William Jasper until it could be mounted again. The flag came to be the symbol of the Revolution, along with the state's new nation. In 1861, the palmetto tree was added to the flag, representing Moultrie's defense on Sullivan's Island. The fortress Moultrie had constructed, survived largely because the palmetto trees which were laid over the sand walls were able to withstand the British cannons.

Today, there are over 2,500 different species of palm trees in the world. Each species can be divided based off of characteristics such as their trunk, size, growth rate, cold tolerance, etc. While most palm trees grow in tropical and subtropical environments, there are some that are able to withstand temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
