Common Name Pinwheel Silver Palm
Type of Plant Palm
Originally considered synonymous with Coccothrinax miraguama, this palm is native to the Moa region of southeast Cuba. Its palmate, divided leaflets create a circular, pinwheel shaped leaf. Its slender trunk is covered in a mesh of fibers, adding to the ornamental quality of the palm.
Requirements A well drained soil is ideal for this palm. It will grow in a variety of soil types but does not need a rich soil to thrive. Partial sun is best before it is mature, but once established prefers full, direct sunlight.
