Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Kylecawaza On Aug 23, 2004, Kylecawaza from Corte Madera, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

It will be a pathetophyte (struggles) In Southern CA. THis palm would do better on the coast than inland. It survives well and thrives anywhere South of Orlando in FL, and Bronseville Texas.

Positive palmbob On Jun 25, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Nice looking solitary pinnate palm from Vanuatu islands, though nearly extinct there. Looks like a slightly smaller version Veitchia joannis with a markedly ringed trunk, silvery pale green crownshaft and pendant premorse leaves. Grows to about 50' tall. Tropical needs.
