Noteworthy Characteristics

Not actually a Palm, but a Cyad, Coontie is a small 'Palm-like' perennial plant that grows to a height of about 3 feet. Coontie forms a colony of suckers that grows into mounds that reach to 5-6 feet wide. Each fern-like glossy dark green leaf grows to about 3 feet in length. Unlike many other cyads Coontie Palm has soft leaf edges. The Coontie produces rusty brown colored reproductive pats called cones that emerge from the ground. The male plant pruduces pollen that fertilizes the female cones. Shiny orange seeds are released in fall. 


Excellent for use in containers or planters, in small groups, woodland borders, tropical look gardens, foundation plantings, poolside plantings, as a groundcover, small focal point specimen, or just about anywhere in the garden that gets full sun, part shade, or filtered sun.


Grows well in full sun, part sun, or shade. Prefers well drained soil with average water needs. When planting in heavier soils use a 50/50 mix of soil amendment or organic matter to native soil.
