S. treubiana Cocos coronata
This palm grows to about 10 m tall, with a crown of attractive arching semi-plumose leaves (Figure 2). The leaf bases are persitant, covered in a white indument (Figure 1), and arranged in roughly 5 spiral rows.
Grown as both an ornamental, and for the oil which can be extracted from its seeds, and the wax from its leaves. One of the best Syagrus for the sub-tropics.
Easily grown in a sunny position in the tropics and sub-tropics, even on calcarous soils.
