Thrinax parviflora Sw., Prodr. Veg. Ind. Occ. 57 1788. ;
Florida Thatch Palm is an attractive fan palm growing up to 15 ft with a graceful slender trunk. Trunks can grow 30-40 ft tall, but are only 5 inches thick.
It develops numerous 3 ft palmate leaves which have up to 60 pleat-like segments. The segments extend two-thirds into the blade and have drooping tips. Leaves are dark green above, silvery beneath. Leaft stalks are about 3 ft long.
Flowers are borne in sprays 3-4 ft long, with many short yellowish branches bearing white bisexual flowers. Fruit is round, 1.2 cm wide, white when ripe.
This is a very slow growing pine. This palm does well in humid weather, and is native to coastal areas of the North American continent.
