Cross betwen Rhapis laoensis and R. humilis that was recently made 'official' by being named and described by a local palm botanist. This palm has some of the best of both parents- hardiness, fewer leaves and smooth trunk- it's a slow growing neat palm that's great for small, shady yards as well as good for indoor use. 'Alicia' refers to the name of the grandaughter of the person who created the hybrid (Louie Hooper).
