Sylvester Palm, Phoenix sylvestris
Sylvesters are a prized specimen with a slow growth rate. This means they are expensive. A group of young sylvester palms grows from a bed of blue plumbagoes at the USF Sarasota/Manatee campus.
It takes time, but sylvester palms will get quite tall. Another common name is date palm as a result of the colorful fruiting bodies that appear around the bud.
