Native to: Florida and the everglades
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata-this attractive clumping palm punctuates the flat horizon of the everglades across south florida. The everglades palm can be seen growing in great mounds that erupt from the edges of the small islands that dot this "river of grass". Also know as paurotis palm, it makes a beautiful and interesting landscape specimen. The palmate leaves are light green with silvery undersides and grow 2-3 ft (0. 6-0. 9 m) in diameter. They are deeply divided into 1 in (2. 5 cm) segments and are held on thin 3 ft (0. 9 m) leafstems. Rows of sharp orange teeth are arranged along the edges and inspire another of the plant's common names, the silver saw palm. About 25 leaves are arranged into crowns that sit above thin stems that are only 3-4 in (7. 6-10. 2 cm) in diameter and are covered with loose brown fiber. These slender stems can grow to 30 ft (9. 1 m) high and lean away from one another creating attractive informal clusters. These can become a very dense tangle of foliage if suckers are not routinely trimmed. Paurotis palm blooms in late spring with white flowers arranged on 4 ft (1. 2 m) inflorescences that extend past the leaves. The small fruits are 1/2 in (1. 3 cm) in diameter.
