So many Old Man Palms

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.
