Comments and Curiosities
Attractive solitary pinnate palm from the Philippine island of Mindanao, where it can grow up to 30' tall. Mature palms develop a dark blue-green crownshaft on top of markedly ringed trunk of blue-green. It has wide, drooping leaflets with premorse (jagged) ends. Great specimen palm for tropical garden landscaping.
