This palm is not as cold sensitive as many would have to think. There is a mature, seeding one way out in the southwestern edge of the Broward County sprawl, 18 miles inland, as well as specimens at Fairchild. It grows moderately fast here in South Florida. I was, of course, dumb enough to take a picture of the trunk base, but not the plant itself! It has a beautiful black pseudocrownshaft....making it visually recognizable over a regular Veitchia. Seeds and leaflets look very similar, however.

This unique palm is native to Fiji - one of the least cold hardy of all palms. Anyway, I went to Fairchild tropical gardens and saw a juvenile there. I would protect if the temps get into the 40's down there.

This is an extremely tropical palm, and I don't think it can even survive in South Florida... but it does great in Hawaii. This is one of my favorite palms of all time... it has incredibly ornamental leaflets, wide, shiny and drooping, and it has one of the most striking crownshafts of all palms - dark purple to black. Wow! Native of one of the Fiji Islands.
