 Gaussia maya, Opsiandra maya
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Maya Palm
Origin: Southern Mexico, Guatemala and Belize
Big tree > 20 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterPalm or palm-like

A tall, solitary feather palm, with a rather small, untidy head of leaves. Its most notable feature is its flowering habit, which can result in up to a dozen inflorescences being on a plant at any one time. Formerly known by the much prettier name 'Opsiandra maya', this fast growing species is easy to grow in pot or in the garden under a warm temperate to tropical climate. The seeds in the round, bright red fruits germinate easily, and seedling growth is fast. The early swollen base is distinctive, as are the attractive grass-green feather shaped leaves. Not often offered for sale, and should be more widely grown. Likes a shady, moist, well drained position as a youngster, but can get more sun as it grows. Temp: 28F.
