So many Old Man Palms

Recommended Posts

While vacationing on Grand Cayman I came across  two potted  Coccothrinax crinita. I was duly impressed. However I was totally flabbergasted as I counted twenty more as I walked further up the street.

:o Wow! Those are taller than any I've ever seen. Looks like they've been shaved some over the years? I prefer the full-bearded look on these guys!

Good to hear from you, Robert!

Good to have something nice to post. 
 

These palms are at least 8-10 feet tall. I’m guessing that they’re in pots because of the design of the streetscape and the filler plants. Awesome look though.

      I have a pot of 7 strap-leaf year-old seedlings from my Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus mother palm. It is rarer than the desired Coccothrinax crinita crinita but I have found it much easier to grow here in Cape Coral. Both subspecies are native to Cuba.

      Mother Palm

      For sale is one lot of 50 seeds of Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus from my mother palm. For lovers of cutesy names this is commonly called the "Short-haired Old Man Palm." This endangered subspecies of the commoner Coccothrinax crinita is native to seasonally wet grasslands and hills of western Cuba. Its trunk is covered by short hair-like fibers. I have both subspecies and find that brevicrinus is easier to grow and less finicky. It has flowered and set seeds for years while my largest crinita has never flowered. Fruit and seeds are large by Coccothrinax standards and growth is moderate. It has large, relaxed dark green leaves.

      Three old men (Coccothrinax crinita) a few houses apart.
      Picture 1 & 2 of same two palms. The smaller palm, the older one)is actually recovering quite well from a full storm toppling, 15 or so years ago.  For the last two years its has outgrown is younger colleague. Both produce seeds.
      The third palm was added to the neighborhood a few weeks before Hurricane Irma.  It had a Irma-induced lean of about 30° off center, but was quickly righted.
