Mountain Thatch Palm
Among the many Thrinax, this species from the mountains of Jamaica is one of the prettiest. It grows a slender, smooth
trunk topped by an open crown of smallish, very thick and leathery
fan leaves with curiously twisted and curled, grass green segments.
This robust palm will thrive in tropical as well as subtropical
climates and tolerates an occasional light frost. It does well even on poor, rocky, or sandy soils, as long as it
is well drained, and, like most Thrinax, it adapts well to coastal exposure.
