The legendary Royal Palm is one of the most spectacular products of the vegetable kingdom. It is a stunningly beautiful, regal and majestic tree with an appearance that is so unusual and different from most trees that it looks like it is almost artificial. It is a towering palm tree with a stout trunk that is swollen at the base and also swollen towards the middle or the top of the trunk. The trunk is light grayish white and smooth so it looks like a concrete pillar. At the top of the trunk is a large, smooth, grass green crownshaft that is several feet long. The canopy of the tree has several long, arching leaves. Leaves are plume-like with several rows of straight, rich, dark green leaflets. Royal Palms area easy to grow in subtropical and tropical regions. They are grown as specimen trees and along roads. An avenue that is lined with long rows of tall Royal Palms is truly stunning and is one of the most beautiful sites of a tropical landscape.
