Attalea Cohune in Flower.


Recommended Posts

Years ago on Palmtalk I said my Attalea was Attalea amygdalina. It's NOT.  The fronds have NO petiole and the leaflets are very different and Amygdalina is said to have NO trunk. 

It's been throwing a  pedunce out  for a few years but NO flowering. It's got 2 VERY large Flowering peduncles and "bee's galore" pollinating her.  I started growing Palms 30+ yrs ago .

When I get a chance with Tigers Mobile I'll get a shot of the whole Palm which is trunking and over a mtr wide and massive fronds.

The flowering section itself IS a good mtr long so LOTS of seed will come off the 2 Peduncles. Time to get some Bee Hives with SO many flowering Palms,Tree's, Orchids, Anthuriums, Philodendrons, Fruit tree's , Cactus, Bamboo's, Bromeliads, Vines etc. Good for ya Brain to be into ALL plants and GOOD for "Mother Earth" and the local wildlife.

VERY healthy addiction being a "plant addict" 😊Happy Gardening to ALL.

Love this palm. I have a very small 5 gallon growing indoors this winter and I am hooked on this palm. I hope to one day get some big enough to plant in the ground. Looking forward to more pictures.

Pedro ain't that the bee's knees!🐝 Naht but that's interesting about them. When my sabals bloom they are covered in all flying insects,

from bees to wasps to flies and beetles ( the non-insidious sort!

S. bermudana has a pleasant sweet smell, sorta like a toned down Ligustrum sp. Not too much.

Those flowers are so massive!Formidable
