BISMARCK PALM (Bismarckia nobilis)

A palm tree for a politician

This stunning silver-leaved palm is one of the few plants that scientists named to honor a politician. It was given her name by the German botanists Friedrich Hermann and Hermann Wendland in 1881, a time when Otto von Bismarck, the ‘Iron Chancellor’, worked to unify the territories of the German empire under his rule. For this reason, and despite the fact that Madagascar was never a German colony, this palm tree honors “Bismarck the noble “.
