Copernicia hospita. Closed on my house in Sept 1994, bought this palm as a one gallon at the South Florida Palm Society Sale at Fairchild first weekend of Nov. 1994. Money was tight then so all I could afford was a one gallon plant. My son was born Nov 30, 1994 - money real tight. Planted in the Spring 1995 - pretty slow palm but worth it. I lucked in getting the silver form of Copernicia hospita. It was not very silver when I bought it.
