Florida Silver Thatch Palm
Origin: Florida
Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

A very pretty small size palm with a slender trunk and an open crown of deeply divided leaves with thin segments, dark green above and silvery white below. The Silver Thatch Palm is a slow but reliable grower and, with its small overall size, it will find room in any garden. It likes a position in full sun or light shade in a tropical or subtropical climate, and, once established, can endure quite some coastal exposure, dry conditions, and even the occasional short, light frost. Indoors it also makes a neat bonsai that can even be cultivated just on a piece of coral limerock, practically without soil. Sunny, moist, but well drained position.

This unique palm comes from the Caribbean island of Hispaniola and has a very unusual, stout trunk that is usually massively swollen in the middle. It bears purple fruits and robust, fan-shaped, green leaves with silvery undersides. It is best suited to tropical climates and will be alright in warm temperate areas where it receives heat in summer and little or no frost in winter.
