My red latan I got from Coconuts around 10 (11?, 12?) years ago has bloomed. Purchased as a 1 gallon mini, it has done real well in a protected spot in my yard. Does anyone know if these need male and female flowers from separate trees? TIA, DT.

Latanias are dioecious. Individual plants are male or female (Genera Palmarum, 2nd ed., Kew) My big Latan, the Door Prize Palm, still doesn't have a trunk, but its slow growth may be due to partial shade. It celebrated its 10th anniversary in the ground in April.

Nice! I got a blue latan off of coconuts the same time period and has gotten large as well. A mini-Bismarckia! I see a ton of latania and Bismarckia in South Florida. They have become ubiquitous. Especially used as interstate landscaping.
