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 crownshaft 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, in groups with other palms. Looks especially majestic planted in rows.
