Pelagadoxa henryana


A very rare, incredibly beautiful tropical palm growing in habitat to 25 feet with large undivided leaves to 7 feet long and 3 to 4 feet wide. Truly, truly an impressive palm. Those huge gorgeous leaves do require protection from wind and it needs filtered light. It’s not too picky about soil, but poorer soils should be amended with mulch and organic matter and moisture, high humidity is to its liking. It is definitely striking. It appears to be much more cold hardy than orginally thought having survived many cold winters, in the ground, in the vincinity of Kendall, which is probably one of the coldest areas of Miami-Dade and even possibly Broward county.
