Endangered in its own habitat on the Guadalupe Islands, this palm is becoming popular in other parts of the world. The sweet pulp from the fruit adds to its attraction, along with its bluish-green fan leaves. It grows to 30' tall and drops its dead leaves, forming attractive scars on the trunk where the leaves once were.
As with its cousin, the blue hesper palm, Guadalupe palm is ill-suited for growing conditions in South Florida: it does not like heavy atmospheric humidity and prefers dry weather all year long. It is also not salt-tolerant, making it a poor choice for seaside gardens. For those willing to give it a try, give it a dry location in full sun, and water sparingly.
