This is the nicest looking Dypsis in My opinion and there are beatiful trunking specimens of this tree all over the LA basin, and in San Diego. This is a beatiful palm that you must have if you can grow it.

Beautiful suckering palm from Madagascar with short, recurved leaves, thick, bamboo like ringed trunk and some hardiness in coastal areas of So Cal. This is a great specimen palm for the warmer gardens and gives the tropical look desired by those who like that sort of thing. I have tried this palm in zone 9b and though it probably can survive in the perfect spot, I haven't found that spot yet.
