CARANDAY PALM (Trithrinax campestris)

The palm tree with the stiffest leaves

The caranday is known as the palm with the stiffest leaves in the world. Its bluish-colored leaves have a hardness that is also characteristic of other drought-resistant plants such as mediterránean oaks, which are called sclerophyllous plants. Both the rigidity and the bluish hue of the leaves are characteristics of very hardy plants that are resistant to aridity. This is not only a drought- and frost-proof palm, but it also has an undoubted unique beauty.
