I've got two of these growing in containers and they are looking pretty good right now. Deff. not a fast grower here but a beautiful palm none the less.

Can't grow this on where I live, but it has some great color for a palm- the trunk and crownshaft have an unbelievable pink or orange coloration that really stands out in a tropical garden full of mostly green. Leaflets are typical rather wide and pendulous. Another Madagascan native.
