Sabal mauritiiformis is so named not because it comes from Mauritius, but because of its resemblance to Mauritia! We have described this latter palm as looking like an exploding firework, and this Sabal is not too far from that. Deeply split, large, fan- shaped leaves with narrow segments hanging down makes it unique in the genus and a real collector's item. Easy germination, easy care, fast growth, and spectacular appearance. It has a patchy distribution in Mexico, Central America, and the north of South America. It grows to a height of 156 to 20 m. It is slightly frost-resistant to - 2 C.
