Description

Massive and symmetrical with a smoothly sculpted trunk this palm looks almost artificial. Eight inch long leaflets are arranged in rows along the 10′ length of bright green pinnate leaves. Composed of 15 – 20 leaves, the canopy sits atop the crown shaft – a smooth, glossy extension of the trunk composed of the overlapping bases of the leaves. The crownshaft looks really smooth green. The trunk of the Royal Palm is swollen at the base. It constricts about halfway up and then bulges again just below the crownshaft creating a dramatic profile. The trunk is a smooth light gray that looks as if it had been cast from concrete. Royal palm produces a large 3′ to 4′ inflorescence on which both male and female flowers are borne, just at the base of the green crownshaft. Royal palm is native to Cuba.
