Dypsis robusta

palm DATA

Habitat: Ranomafana, Madagascar

Notes:  A palm initially described from this very specimen from Floribunda pictured above, this massive palm is often confused as a young plant with D. prestoniana, but as an adult can easily be distinguished by its regular leaflets and more compact crown.

Cold Hardiness: Its robust nature allows it to tolerate a good spot in the temperate garden.
