The saw palmetto palm (Serenoa repens) is valued for its medicinal properties, especially in prostate relief. Proliferating indigenously in the southeastern United States and the West Indies, as of 2011 most of the commercially produced saw palmetto is supplied by Florida. Saw palmetto is naturally insect and drought resistant, making it popular for landscaping.
