Feather-leaved Palms, Tree-cacti, and Yuccas (Plate 48) These feather-leaved palms are native in s. Florida and have ring- scarred trunks free of old leafstalk bases. Their leafstalks are not thorny. The only tree cacti in the eastern U.S. occur in s. Florida. The yuccas range more widely.FLORIDA ROYALPALM Roystonea elata (Bartr.) F.

Fruits blue to purple, 1?2" in diameter, leathery. Rich soils, hammocks (swamp islands).
