This single trunk, white crown-shafted palm comes from the island of New Caledonia. There is grows in locations from sea level to 2000 feet. It is a medium sized plant best known for its white crown shaft. Known for decades as a monotypic species “Veillonia alba“, in the past decade taxonomists decided renamed it Cyphophoenix alba. Trunk diameter is thin, about six inches. Height is about forty feet, sometimes taller. This species is known to grow in better areas of Southern California. The crown shaft is covered with either white or red-brown tomentum and is striking. Prominent rings are seen on the trunk. The leaves are green and overall, the crown is a medium size. I would recommend growing this is filtered light and let it work its way into a bit more sun. Cold tolerance is into the mid-twenties F. As this species is super rare and hard to find, if you get one you have to be careful with it. It would be difficult to replace is you lose it through poor culture. We have put 5 gallon on sale.
