Description & Remarks
Adult trees of the two Washingtonia species are planted at a close proximity in the botanic garden of Palermo, Sicily. Visiting there for almost a week, early September 2010, enabled me to learn how to differentiate between the two.Washingtonia filifera has a trunk with a large diameter and its leaves are erect and not-shining. The leaves of Washingtonia robusta are nodding and their surface is shiny. This shining – not-shining situation is prominent in young individuals as well.
