Broward Trees > Foxtail Palm
The foxtail palm (Wodyetia bifurcate) is a popular species
desired for its elegant, full canopy of 8-10 leaves (when mature) for which it
is best distinguished and is often compared to the tail of a fox. Pale green
arching fronds have leaflets that radiate out at all angles from the leaf stem.
The crown of a foxtail palm will often measure 15-20 feet across when mature.
Foxtail palms are thornless, adding to their popularity, especially in active
areas. A slender, closely ringed columnar trunk can grow up to 30 ft tall. The
foxtail palm bears white blossoms of both sexes at the base of its crown, and a
single palm is capable of producing fertile seeds.
