    Description

Acoelorrhaphe wrightii - Silver Saw Palmetto

This listing is for a pack of 20 seeds of this medium sized palm.

Acoelorrhaphe wrightii  is known locally by many common names including Paurotis palm, also known as the Everglades palm, Madiera palm and Silver saw palmetto.

It is native to Central America, southeastern Mexico, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and extreme southern Florida where it grows in swamps and periodically flooded forests. It is a small to moderately tall palm that grows in clusters to 5–7 metres (16–23 ft), rarely 9 m (30 ft) tall, with slender stems less than 15 centimetres (5.9 in) diameter. The leaves are palmate (fan-shaped), with segments joined to each other for about half of their length, and are 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft) wide, light-green above, and silver underneath. The leaf petiole is 1–1.2 m (3.3–3.9 ft) long, and has orange, curved, sharp teeth along the edges. The flowers are minute, inconspicuous and greenish, with 6 stamens. The trunk is covered with fibrous matting. The fruit is pea-sized, starting orange and turning to black at maturity.

It makes an ideal pot plant and will remain considerably smaller if restricted by pot growth.  It is not frost tolerant and suitable for outdoor use in Zone 10 and up.  It can be grown outside in pots in summer once the night time lows are above 4 Deg C.    It will also make an ideal houseplant, being extremely tolerant of neglect, requiring only a well lit location.  It is also tolerant of low humidity.  Easy to germinate from seed, it will grow quite fast initially, slowing down when older.
