Lytocaryum weddellianum - Miniature Coconut Palm

Lytocaryum weddellianum - Miniature Coconut Palm (Lytocaryum weddellianum - Miniature Coconut Palm)

One of my favorite dwarf palms! It grow very slowly to around 15ft (4.6m) tall. This one is growing in the huge lath-house known as the Botanical Building in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. Photo taken June 25, 2013.

You never see them for sale. BUT, the one at the Oakland Palmetum has been there for years. A more graceful Phoenix roebellini.

It's a pretty rare palm; however, it's a tough one. It does well in the SF Bay Area.
