Coccothrinax borhidiana - Borhidi's Guano Palm - 2pcs seeds/packet
To those who have seen this very rare palm in the flesh, it easily surpasses any other Coccothrinax in appearance, including the famed C. crinita. Native only to a small beach area in the north of Cuba, where it grows in stunted coastal vegetation, it is seriously threatened with extinction. It is a smallish palm with a slender trunk thickly clothed in a coat of undulated fibers, topped by a very dense crown of closely spaced, circular, rigid, thick and leathery, dark green leaves that are held on short petioles.
This palm is without doubt one of the most desirable of the Coccothrinax.
