The royal palm grows quite close to the sea, in tropical areas where the water is plentiful and at a low altitude.

It can only be grown outside in the warmest parts of southern Europe where it drops and replaces all its leaves once every year.

It is of an impressive size and grows very rapidly if the conditions are good.

Its trunk is somewhat like a robust grey marble column ending in a capital crowned with dark green leaves.

It likes heat, rich soil and plenty of water. It can tolerate periods of drought if it is well established.

It is a very useful plant in the Caribbean. Its trunk serves to make planks, its leaves to roof houses and its fruit, called “palmiches” are animal feed.
