Positive palmbob On Mar 6, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Rare and diminutive, attractive N Australian palm- a true dwarf fan palm. It is similar in appearance to Livistona inermis but more robust- fan leaves very wispy and deeply divided right down their base. Very slow growing and touchy here in So Cal (very rare in cultivation so far). Leaves have a nice blue-grey coloration. Drought tolerant.
