Large blue-green to very dark green leaves on this large species of SAbal... looks like Sabal causarium or bermudana, though tends to have darker leaves. From the Dominican Republic. Leaves markedly costapalmate. Prone to potassium deficiency in southern California (yellow spotting on lower leaves).
