Washingtonia robusta (Mexican fan palm)

Washingtonia robusta - Soaring to over 100 ft (30.5 m), this skyscraper of the palm world is a striking sight. The gray trunk is ringed with closely set leaf scars although usually at least part of the trunk remains covered with dead leaves that hang in a thatch. The solitary trunk, about 10-12 in (25.4-30.5 cm) in diameter, bulges at the ground and becomes slender as it approaches a crown of large palmate leaves with gracefully drooping leaflet tips. These are rich glossy green and grow to about 5 ft (1.5 m) long and 4 ft (1.2 m) wide. They are borne on 3 ft (0.9 m) orange leaf stems that are edged with vicious saw-tooth spines. As the leaves die, they fall against the trunk to create the "hula skirt" effect for which this palm is famous.  Family : Arecaceae
