LATANIA LODDIGESII PDF

A single-trunked palm, eventually 20 to 35 feet tall with a foot spread, Latan Palms are noted for their distinctive, coarse-textured costapalmate leaves. The large, very thick and stiff leaves, up to eight feet in diameter, are held aloft on five-foot-long petioles. The surface of each leaf is covered with a whitish, waxy or wooly down, providing a silvery appearance to the palm. The three to six-foot-long flower stalks are present among the leaves in spring and some of the glossy brown, two-inch-wide fruits are always ripening.
