This is a neat palm with self cleaning leaves, and the foliage is decorative with a dense feathery look, growing from a grey trunk. It grows to around 10 metres tall in garden situations. This beautiful palm was only brought into cultivation relatively recently, in the 1970’s, and comes from far north Queensland in the Cape Melville range, so is best in tropical to sub tropical climates. The fruit is red when ripe but is toxic.
