Comments and Curiosities
Veitchia spiralis is a very fast growing and a very rewarding palm for the humid tropics. Largest and most ornamental red fruit/seed of the Veitchia genus. A favorite at LGF ! As with V. winin, if you're looking for a super fast growing, no maintenance, beautiful canopy palm this is it !
