Caryota urens is a tall single trunk monocarpic palm species native to Asia. It is fast growing and can get to a height of 70 feet. It is definitely a canopy-forming palm species. Leaves a green and leaflets are premorse (jagged at their ends). Some people love the grandeur of these palms. Trunks are tan, ringed and about 16 inches diameter on average. It will get taller and more quickly get there than almost any other palm in your garden. They want full sun and, especially if inland, plenty of water. Because they are monocarpic (flower and then die), one needs a plant that is near death to get seeds. This occurs rarely. We were able to germinate seeds from such a plant. They are presently in 2 gallon pots (on Special) to give their roots a chance to take offer and promote growth. I’ve not had this species available for about six to eight years. They are on their second leaf. Of note, there’s been a high demand for this species because of its scarcity and non-availability. I wish I had larger to offer but we just don’t.
