This beautful palm can survive the heat as well as teh cool. This palm survived Fort Bragg CA, showing that it has potential of surviving other coastal areas.

Sorry, this was for the wrong palm. I meant Wettinia praemorsa and kalbreyeri.

Attractive palm with long gray-green crownshaft and pendant, premorse (bitten-off tips) leaflets on long (up to 15'), straight leaves... gives the impression of looking at a skinny Holland windmill from afar (branches sort of form and 'X' shape from a distance). Has stilt roots in the wild, but not always seen in cultivation. Very tropical in its needs. from Colombia and Ecuador.
