I got to see a great one in the Sunset District of California last spring. They do well up there - better than in So. Cal. They like the cool coastal envirnment more than inland and need lots of shade if inland.

THis is a beautiful South American palm with new pinkish leaves and a brilliant red crownshaft. It is one of the few Geonomas that have been grown successfully in Southern California- Geonomas in general are very fastidious plants and don't like dry heat, cold or wind. They live in high forests where the temps range only a bit and are never extreme. It is a great palm for climates like nothern New Zealand, possibly VAncouver or N California, and, so far, very temperate, protected areas along the So Cal coast. They need to be wet all the time, too.
