Kentiopsis oliviformis

Habitat and Distribution

Central New Caledonia.


A large solitary palm with thick, erect, pinnate fronds, a stunning, long, deep green crow-shaft ( it’s best feature ! ) and a beautifully leaf-scared “ringed” trunk, flared at the base.


Kentiopsis oliviformis likes a sub-tropical rather than tropical climate. Cold Hardiness Zone: 9b. Rare in cultivation but very adaptable, even takes the occasional light freeze without damage.

Comments and Curiosities

The name “oliviformis” refers to it’s olive-shaped fruits. Kentiopsis oliviformis is endangered. All populations are in areas under agricultural pressure. Clearing of forests and harvesting trees for the edible cabbage or palm heart have much reduced populations. A favorite for many palm collectors !
