Roystonea

Royal Palm
Arecaceae (Palmae)
Palms and cycads

Stately, symmetrical feather palms. Tall, smooth gray trunk is marked with rings and topped by a green crown shaft formed by the overlapping bases of the feathery fronds. Grows at a moderate to fast rate. Does best in moist, well-drained soil. Good wind and salt resistance. Can be used as street or avenue trees, to frame large buildings, and  in groups with other palms. They look especially majestic planted in rows.
