THis is a wonderfully ornamental palm from New Caledonia- thin grey ringed trunk with a dark purply-grey crownshaft and wide, varible leaflets on arching leaves. Leaves themselves usually a dark green. Here in southern California this is a touchy plant and doesn't like a lot of temperature extremes... nothing over 90 and nothing under 40... but grown under canopy, several have had success with this species. In Hawaii it is a pretty easy grow and much faster one, too.
