Originating from the West Indies and the Americas, this genus is characterised by its deeply divided, fan-shaped leaves and this plant has many common names including Cabbage Palm. The leaf bases are retained on the trunk, forming bundles below the tree crown. This species produces small, creamy-yellow 3-petalled flowers from in between the leaves. Considered hardy, they can cope with temperatures as low as -14 degrees Celsius, so are a popular choice for temperate garden planting.
