Latania lontaroides Red Palm

Scientific name: Latania lontaroides or Latania lontarodes

Common names: The Red Latan Palm is also known as Latania borbonica, Latania commersonii, and Latanier Rouge.

Family: Arecaceae

Origin: It is native to the island of Reunion where they are being threatened with extinction.

Appearance: It has a single clean trunk, slightly swollen at the base. The trunk is smooth, woody, about 10 inches in diameter, and lightly ringed by the scars from the fallen fronds.

Large, palmate, or fan-shaped, leaves create a rounded crown 15-20ft across. Stiff leaves are supported by large armed stems 4-5ft long. Young palms have reddish leaves, petiole, leaf margins, and veins, hence this palm’s common name Red Latan Palm. As they grow their leaves lose their colour and turn green. Leaf stems and the leave margins always stay red. The surface of each leaf is covered with a whitish, waxy deposit, providing a silvery appearance to the palm.

Flowers/Fruits: During spring, the Red Latan Palm produces small yellow flowers that grow in clusters on 6ft long inflorescence that emerge from among the leaves. Red Latan Palm is dioecious, male and female flowers are born on separate plants. Flowers are followed by oval fruit. The fruit is brownish-green, fleshy, 2-3 inches long, with a single seed inside. The seed is round at one end but pointed at the other.
