Alexandre Palm, King Palm, Nothern Bangalow Palm
Origin: Northern Australia Tropical rainforest
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPalm or palm-like

This is a single, slender trunked palm (30 ft). Given a shady spot, they grow slim and elegant, holding a crown of dark green leaves above a green crownshaft. Irrigation, fertilizer and mulch are necessary. No garden would be without the odd corner to accommodate a specimen or two. Not used very much in public plantings, but popular in Northern Territory as a tub palm.

One of the most attractive of the Archontophoenix and performs very well. The purple of the crownshaft is its main ornamental feature making it unique among palms. Purple color seems to be more prominent with slight shaded, protected situations. This is a pretty robust plant, compared to the regular King palm. Leaves have a whitish underside and trunks are more markedly ringed.

RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
SUNSHINE Robusta - Rapid Growth Booster
Purple Palm Food - Smart Release Palm Booster
