Roystonea elata

Royal Palm

Along avenues, in groups or masses, these fast-growing slender palms are beautiful and stately. Their slender trunks often bulge in the middle. Their blooms are small and white. They resist wind and salt spray, but must be protected from heavy winds in sub-tropical gardens. Give ample water during growing season and less at other times.
