This is a nice looking palm but NOT one I have any success with, and I've tried many times. It has an extremely fastidious nature, at least as a seedling, and cannot tolerate drying out, cold or a lot of sun. But in Hawaii it does great. I have a seen a few seedlings growing in San Diego and Orange Counties, and finally some are maturing into beautiful plants. It is a nicely colored tree having lots of black in it. It is a native of New Caledonia and on of the few palms from there without a crownshaft.
