Not uncommon in its home in the Florida Everglades and other swampy areas in the Caribbean, this lovely palm typically
grows with three or four of its slim trunks towering above the rest of the clump.
Small, neat, fan-shaped leaves atop chestnut brown stems gives it an attractive appearance. Requires acidic soil for
best color, and, as you might guess, an abundance of water. Very adaptable; suited to tropical
as well as temperate climates and can take some frost.
