Striking in appearance, the pindo's feather-leaf, silver-colored fronds (some call it more of a blue-green) create an outstanding contrast to a typical yard's greenery.
These are some of the hardiest palms in South Florida, laughing at cold, blazing sun, salt air and dry conditions.
A native plant sometimes called "Jelly Palm," the pindo produces edible berries that can be made into jelly with a sweet banana/pineapple flavor.
The look of the this palm is unique yet versatile. It can fit in small yards, especially pretty with a modest beach house, an old-fashioned Florida bungalow, or dressing up the yard of a ranch-style home. And pindo palms work for large woodland estates, horse ranches or waterfront homes as a bright spot in the landscape.
