Figure 1. S. 'Abre ojos'


Distribution & Habitat:



A tall, attractive, solitary, partially plumose palm.


A (probably) hybrid Syagrus from Mexico. The story behind it is that Bob Dejong was on a surfing trip in Mexico when he came upon this massive beauty growing behind a liquor store next to an ice machine. The palm was growing inside of a tire and got constant water from a leak in the tubing on the ice machine. Apparantly the leak kept a constant drip on the palm and Bob was able to get a few seeds.


Sunny, moist, but well drained position.
