A while back I purchased a Red Latan Palm ( Latania lontaroides ).  I finally put it in the ground yesterday.  The Red Latan Palm can grow to heights of 40 feet tall.  They also require cosistantly moist soil and full sun to grow at their best.  It is a good idea to space them about 12 feet apart when planting multiples.  The Red Latan Palm is native to the Mascaregne Islands which are 200kms from Mauritius.

 Here are some pictures of my new addition to the front yard.




Notice the red edges hencing the name Red Latan Palm. They are very sharp too.









I hope you enjoyed this post. See you again next time!!
