Sargent's cherry palm in the Florida Keys

Pseudophoenix sargentii

Natural and artificial regeneration of an endangered palm in Biscayne National Park


Biscayne National Park holds the only natural population of Sargent's cherry palm (Pseudophoenix sargentii) in the United States. Although the species is widespread throughout the Caribbean region, its numbers have been decreasing in many of its habitats. Florida's population, located on Elliott Key, provides a unique opportunity to study and conserve this rare palm.
