This palm is still somewhat of a mystery in that it is so slow growing that none of any size are growing outside of habitat. If that is not the case, I sure would like to know. the largest one I have seen (in the Sullivan Garden) only came up to my waist. This one is about 10 years old (from seed) and is ready for the ground. I noticed it had developed this unique looking heel and thought I would try and document it for general interest or comments. Have any of you seen similar looking heels?
