Coccothrinax miraguama is found on hills and in savannahs around Cuba. It forms a single-stemmed palm tree up to 30' tall in the wild, but due to its slow growth rate, 10-12' is more realistic in a garden or landscape setting. Miraguama palm is considered by many palm enthusiasts to have the best-looking foliage of all the Coccothrinax palms. The leaves form a complete circular outline that tilts and moves attractively in the wind. Each leaf is partially divided and very stiff, and the individual leaflets form an inverted V shape in cross section; the leaves are rich dark green above and chalky gray-white on the undersides. The slender trunk is only 6" in diameter, covered in black fibers near the leaves.
Coccothrinax palms are native to areas of the Caribbean that experience the same humid wet summers and dry winters as South Florida, making them perfectly adapted for landscape cultivation in South Florida. As a group they are slow-growing but also extremely low-maintenance, drought tolerant, salt tolerant, and not picky as to soil type, although they grow faster and more lush if given rich soil and regular watering. Their only requirement is full sun, but they can tolerate partial shade quite well.
