Also known as African Wild Date Palm, this densely clumping palm’s Latin name reclinata hints at the way the outer stems gently bend and lean forward. This species suckers vigorously, and an adult clump can sometimes count even 20 stems! Wild and unpruned, it quickly forms walls of clumps that are nearly impenetrable to man. It grows from sea level to 3.000 m. altitude, in full sunlight. When occurring in low-altitude bushveld, it is browsed by elephants.
