Did you know that the Palm is a group of trees? Sometimes the term “Paml” refers to shrubs and vines that grow ini warm and wet climates, especially in the tropics. Many types of Palms grow right here in Southern California, and they grow in Southeast Asia, the Pacific islands, and in tropical America. Palms are found in many other places, including Argentina, central Chile, New Zealand, and South Africa. Palms serve as food in many places, too, and live for as long as 100 years.
Palms are an ancient group of plants. Fossils of palm leaves have been found that date from the Age of Reptiles. Palms once grew in all parts of the world, and palm fossils have been found as far north as Greenland.
The trunk is usually straight and round and from 4 to 24 inches (10 to 61 centimeters) thick. But some palms have trunks that are no thicker than a pencil, while others have trunks that are 5 feet (1.5 meters) thick. The trunk may range from a few inches or centimeters to well over 100 feet (30 meters) tall. The trunks of the larger palm trees grow from 1 to 4 feet (30 to 120 centimeters) a year. The trunk may have rough or smooth bark, and some have thorns. Only a few palms have branches growing from the trunk. A few kinds have a strawlike “skirt” of dead leaves that hangs down along the trunk. Most palms have their fanlike or featherlike leaves clustered at the top of the trunk.
The leaves vary greatly in size and appearance. The smallest leaves are less than 1 foot (30 centimeters) long. Most of the fanlike leaves are from 2 to 4 feet (60 to 120 centimeters) wide, and the featherlike types may be 20 feet (6 meters) long and from 1 to 4 feet (30 to 120 centimeters) wide. Two types produce the largest leaves. The talipot palm has fan-shaped leaves that may be 15 feet (4.6 meters) wide. The raffia palm’s leaves may be 65 feet (20 meters) long and 8 feet (2.4 meters) wide. Mature leaves remain on a palm from one to nine years.
“Palm trees should have a great green canopy, like a fluffy ball on a stick.”
