Mystery Monday 102212 Palm Tree

Happy Mystery Monday! It's getting cold here. The leaves on my apricot tree are changing to a lovely golden color. My apple and peach/nectarine trees have not changed yet. So many other trees around town are now swathed in beautiful robes of red, orange, yellow, brown and green.

Your clues for this week:

  • This palm tree is the only member of its genus.
  • It is commonly used for men's health.
  • The plant is native to the Southeastern United States.

Can you name this palm tree? Good luck!
