Native to: The cuban petticoat palm is native to cuba as are several other members of this genus, including c. Baileyana, c. Glabresens and c. Rigida.
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - cuban petticoat palm has a single trunk which grows up to 30 ft (9. 1 m) high and 8 in (20. 3 cm) in diameter. 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". The foliage of petticoat palm produces a canopy about 6-10 ft (1. 8-3. 1 m) in diameterthis cuban native adores full sun and is a truly unique specimen palm. In fact, many growers consider it their favorite. Be careful, petticoat palm may become your center of attention and conversation care: petticoat palm will tolerate poor soils, however it responds well to fertilization. It does best in full sun, with hot and humid conditions. Trim the leaves as they fade if you don't care for the petticoat (they can harbor bugs and varmints). This gives the palm a less massive and more graceful look. Highly drought tolerant, the petticoat palm also thrives in moist soils with good drainage.
