    This stunning palm is one of the largest and fastest growing in the genus Sabal. It is native to the Caribbean Islands of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and to the Virgin Islands, where it is quite common in a number of different habitats. It sports a thick, smooth gray trunk and a dense crown of strongly costapalmate, bluish-green leaves. In cultivation it is as easy as any other Sabal and even though not quite as hardy to freezing temperatures as most of its cousins, it will withstand an occasional icing and will flourish in most tropical and warm temperate climates with hot summers. Once established, it is also hardy to drought and coastal conditions Sabal causiarum is frequently confused with Sabal domingensis but can easily be told apart by its large, papery leafbase appendages and its inflorescences which are much longer than the leaves. This palm is distinguished from other Sabals by its massive smooth gray trunk which can grow up to 4 ft (1.2 m) in diameter! Most Sabals retain their old leaf bases on the trunk, creating a textured crisscross or "cabbage leaf" pattern instead of a smooth trunk. The leaves of Puerto Rican hat palm are large, usually about 6 ft (1.8 m) long and just as wide.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
