Phoenix roebelenii

Pigmy Date Palm

These large, slow-growing palms have erect trunks topped with an umbrella of arching, feather-shaped, coarse, leathery leaves. Trunks become patterned with the bases of old leaf stalks. Clusters of summer flowers are followed by sometimes edible fruits among green or gray-green leaves. Like plenty of moisture, but tolerate some drought once established.
