This is one of the most beautiful palms in the world. A feather solitary palm to about 20-25ft, with a spectacular, bright red new leaf, which stays red for up to 10 days. The leaflets are also very wide, thick, and shiny so even without a new leaf it is very distinctive with very fat and thick pinnate leaves 10-12 feet long. Easy to grow. This is a must have in the garden.
