Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - perhaps one of the toughest and hardiest palms is nannorrhops ritchieana, the mazari palm. Although this palm does not form a traditional trunk, it looks just as striking in any landscape. Mazari palm grows in a shrub or mounding form 10-20 ft (3. 1-6. 1m) tall and spreading even more than that. The semi-palmate leaves, similar to those of cabbage palm, are about 4 ft (1. 2 m) wide, 4 ft (1. 2 m) long and have unarmed petioles, 1-3 ft (0. 3-0. 6 m) long. Mazari palm does not have a crownshaft and its stem remains below ground. Mazari palm has branches above ground and slowly develops a bushy shrublike appearance. Each stem or branch is monocarpic which means that it flowers only once, then dies back and produces an offshoot. The white flowers are held out and above the foliage in 4-6 ft (1. 2-1. 8 m) long branching clusters. The fruits, which are edible, are 0. 5 in (1. 3 cm) in diameter and are brown to orange in color, with a single seed.
