As posted earlier, this native of Round Island in the Mascarenes is such a delightful palm to look at. Its structure is compact and unique. One can't help but think of a particular soft drink bottle it represents!
Prefers part shade but so far, all those sighted locally have been planted in full sun! Perhaps, explains the yellowing of the feather leaves from the recent hot spell. This is quite a hardy plant as long as there is adequate water (rain, of course!).
