What a sight! This native of Madagascar island in South Africa is definitely one to behold. One has got to see to believe and appreciate its uniqueness. This palm is also known as the Madagascar Palm. It has got a solid dark brown trunk and a spectacular crown shaft comprising 3 rows of silvery grey feather leaves. The fronds appearing on the 3 sides give a bizarre but dramatic effect.
It is suitable for both indoors and out, potted or planted with very little care except trim a frond or three!

This is one of the rarer and oddest palm specimen I've come across todate. Needless to say, there will be many more exotic and exciting ones for me to learn and discover with this amazing collection.
