Interesting Fact: Well known for its large, circular, simple, undivided and closely pleated leaves, giving it its name as Fan palm. The tree has broad, thin leaves, smooth bark and bears clusters of green sweet-smelling flowers that mature into sticky barbed seeds. Dispersal occurs when seeds stick to bird feathers.
Vegetative reproduction frequently results when fallen branches sprout or basal shoots develop into new trees.
