THis is probably just a variant of the normal Dypsis pinnatifrons, but it looks different- much more robust (thicker stem and crownshaft) and has a lot of great color- pale crownshaft with pink coloration on it. THe new leaves of this palm are a deep maroon or red. It has been sold under a variety of names. Also from Madagascar
