This is the best and almost only Clinostigma for the subtropics. They have an interesting trunk with their irregular nodes and the crownshaft is a beautiful powder blue-silver. Coming from a very isolated place in the world, it is quite rare in South Florida and would be highly desireable in the palm collector's garden. It is not fussy about soil and adapts well to our limestone rock.

Clinostigma savoryanum can grow in full sun near the coast but seems to do best in partly shade or filtered light. The color of the trunk varies from how much shade it gets. Plant in soil with great drainage and keep soil moist with mulch topping to be happy. This palm is a steady grower in zone 10a.

Though not the most spectacular of the genus, this is still a very attractive palm of up to 40'. It is the most cold hardy, though, growing naturally on small islands south of Japan. Many growers have had success with this palm here in southern California, though it never gets as nice as it does in the tropics, it is still a great palm for warm, protected areas of So Cal. It has 10' long spreading leaves with droopy leaflets like most other Clinostigma, and a bright green, long crownshaft. The trunk is light green and irregularly ringed.
