Ravenea xerophila

Common Name Anivona Palm
Type of Plant Palm

Ravenea xerophila has an incredibly slow growth rate, so much so that its overall height at maturity can only be estimated at a maximum of 14' OA. It is pinnate with a slender trunk around 8-10" in caliper and blue-green vertical leaves. It has a unique root system that most closely resembles that of a cycad or succulent- a dense network of highly delicate roots.

Requirements Preferring a well-drained soil, this palm does not like "wet feet". It has excellent heat and drought tolerance however and can withstand cold snaps down to the low/mid 20's Fahrenheit. It grows best in full sun.
