Acoelorraphe wrightii, Acoelorrhaphe

Paurotis, Silver Saw Palmetto, Everglades Palm

Commonly seen at the edges of islands, not in long-standing water. It likes full sun or some light shade, is tolerant to a variety of soil conditions but is not happy about being planted in high pH soils. The palm grows in clusters of trunks and is rated at about 20 feet high. Small, neat, fan-shaped leaves atop chestnut brown stems gives it an attractive appearance..
