Although I am not growing or offering this rare palm species at the nursery, I thought I’d show you a few photographs from the Chapman Research Station in Miami. It is so rarely seen or grown that there are minimal photos on the Internet. It is a medium sized, crown shafted palm that grows in the Philippines and, surprisingly, is mentioned as being somewhat cold hardy. I am not sure what that means. Here we cannot grow Areca catechuand this species closely resembles it. I know of no one here growing Areca macrocarpa here. It is supposed to get to a height of about 20-25 feet. The crown shaft is a bright green and the overall appearance is quite elegant. The first five photos are of this species. The bottom row of A. catechu. If anyone has information on this species, please contact me.
