Royal Palm, Roystonea regia

This native palm flourishes in wild Florida cypress wetlands where seeds are spread by birds and other animals. It will tolerate periodic flooding that occurs during the summer months. The heart of the tree is edible just like the Cabbage Palm. They are well known for having very tall, smooth, light grey trunks. Often seen along lighted highways, around down-town tall buildings and beach areas in Florida.
