Positive palmbob On Jun 19, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

this is an extremely rare palm- only 4 individuals left in the wild on Hawaii, and also extremely rare in cultivation. It has large, wedge-shaped flat perfect leaves only barely split at the tips and the undersides are a luminscent coppery silver. Very ornamental if you can find the seed ... someday seedlings may be for sale if they can get the plants to reproduce.

Regional...
