Comments and Curiosities

"One of the best looking Iguanuras with dense clustering stems adorned with 3' long, unsegmented leaves that are an oblong shape, rounded at the ends and wavy. It is a beautiful palm but hopeless in southern California or most anywhere else in the mainland US except maybe Miami and south." (Geoff Stein), edric.
