Maria Rosa Palm
A medium-sized palm from southeastern Brazil with a slender trunk to 8 m (27 ft.) tall, topped by a crown of beautiful,
elegantly arching, feathery leaves with curly leaflets. Syagrus macrocarpa is a highly ornamental palm, as easy and
rewarding to grow as the Queen Palm, and has enormous potential for horticulture. It will easily adapt to cultivation
in warm temperate as well as tropical areas. As one of the rarest of all Syagrus, both in the wild where it faces
the threat of extinction and in cultivation, seeds of this species are hardly ever available.
