Triangle palms grow their fronds along the trunk in 3 ranks. They make the shape of a triangle, hence, the common name. Photo taken at Paradise Point Resort, Mission Bay, San Diego, CA on Jan. 1, 2011.

I've been wanting to get a good photo of the Triangle palm to show how it grows...and how it was given its common name.
