Borhidis Guano Palm
To those who have seen this very rare palm in the flesh, it easily surpasses
any other Coccothrinax in appearance, including the famed C. crinita.
Native onlyto a small beach area in the north of Cuba, where it grows
in stunted coastal vegetation, it is seriously threatened with extinction.
It is a smallish palm with a slender trunk thickly clothed in a coat of
undulated fibers, topped by a very dense crown of closely spaced, circular,
rigid, thick and leathery, dark green leaves that are held on short petioles.
This palm is without doubt the most desirable of the Coccothrinax, and
we are very proud to be able to offer this fantastic palm in a reasonable
quantity at long last.
