Positive palmbob On Jun 7, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Of the three 'commonly' grown Kentiopsis, this is the most attractive as an adult palm. As a seedling it has wonderfully pink petioles and sea green arched leaves. However, I didn't have any luck keeping one alive. It was called Mackeea Champagne back then, but now it has been properly assigned a name. This is a tall (50') New Caledonian palm with strongly arched leaves and perfectly straight leaflets. It is a very slow growing palm, though, so not too many large ones outside of New Caledonia (in fact, I have never seen an adult palm).
