An alley of tall palm trees
An alley lined with tall royal palms (Roystonea regia) leads the visitors of the Habitation Clément gardens in Martinique to the site's tropical orchard and former cattle mill. These palms of the Arecaceae family belong to the genus Roystonea. Native to the Caribbean and Cuba, they can reach a height of 98 ft (30 m) and are grown as ornamental plants in many tropical or subtropical regions. Their majestic silhouette, with a smooth, slender stipe crowned with a tuft of long, fine palms, is at the origin of their vernacular name. Their flexible palms, erect for the youngest or slightly drooping, measure up to 11.4 ft (3.5 m). The older ones bend downwards before falling, leaving the stipe always smooth and clean.
