Container Cuban Copernicia at Jesse Durko's Nursery..

A stroll through the awesome stately old Cuban Copernicia mini-groves planted at Fairchild Garden is an enchanting, rare experience for a palm enthusiast, and has likely converted a few more over the decades. The fully mature planting is unique, but this is not a palm you can find available with significant trunk footage, if any at all in nurseries. Nevertheless the magnificence of the tree is not fully appreciated until it has at least fifteen feet of trunk to set off the architecture of the crown. So it is a well known palm to collectors, but something you will have to acquire from  a collector and cultivate to size in your tropical landscape.
