Sabal Maritima. Bull Thatch Palm. 

The Sabal Maritima is closely related to the Sabal Causiarum and the Sabal Domingensis but it has a more slender and taller trunk whitish in colour. Topping the trunk is a crown of about 25 intense green costa palmate shaped leaves which recurve at the tips. The petioles are densely covered with light coloured scales which tend to fall off as the leaf ages. Unarmed, this is an impressive and beautiful palm .
