Copernicia humicola

back to Cuban palm listCuban_Palms.html

Copernicia humicola is unknown in cultivation because the plants were found and samples vouchered but never seen for many years until 2017.  This is a green leaved medium sized Copernicia that is attractive but difficult to find strong characteristics to make it distinguishing.  The Copernicia is sympatric with Sabal maritima and Coccothrinax gundlachi.
