 Copernicia macroglossa
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Cuban Petticoat Palm
Origin: Cuba
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-like

This unique palm has erect leaves that grow in the form of a spiral from the top of the trunk. The leaves are fan-shaped and grow right out of the trunk with almost no petiole (leaf stem). This gives the tree a "dressed" appearance, with the persistent older leaves forming its unique and characteristic "petticoat". This genus of palm trees was named after the famous Polish astronomer Copernicus (1473-1543), who proposed that the Earth was the center of the universe, around which all heavenly objects orbited.
