Very tall fan palm from Thailand and surrounding countries- looks, and is probably related to, Livistonas. Has deeply divided, somewhat drooping huge fan leaves (6' wide) on long (6-7') petioles. The most beautiful feature of younger palms (can't appreciate this as palms get too tall) are the ornamental broad yellow stripes along the petioles. Needs a tropical environment to do well, and not aware of any success here in California with this species.
