Originally from the South Pacific island of Vanuatu, the palms are now widely cultivated around the world.
It is known to be a very tall palm but so far, I've noticed, they appear to be of average height and therefore,
most desired ornamental plant around home gardens and commercial landscaped spaces.
Luckily, in tropical countries, they grow easily with very little maintenance.
Below are two very healthy and beautiful specimens of the Montgomery growing in my sister's garden. The area is sunny yet cool as the strong sun is partly blocked out by a neighbouring house. This appears to be the ideal location for them.
The sturdy greyish green trunks look almost like bamboo and each leaf shaft comprise many leaflets with blunt tips, which is very different from most palms.
