A medium sized Dypsis, with a strikingly coloured petiole, and crownshaft. A very rare palm, so little is known about its eventual size (the plants pictured are amongst the largest outside Madagascar).
Some seeds of this palm came into Australia in the late 1980's, however it hasn't been seen since. It has also had no formal identification.
One of the warmer growing of the Madagascan palms,
it seems to prefer the tropics to the sub-tropics.
