Good to see this, Gillian, we don't seem to have them down this way. Always knew them as a Piccabeen Palm, from memory.

Thanks for calling by, George. We bought this as a tiny plant about 8 inches tall. It is now about 7 metres tall :-)

Such a beautiful and fantastic composition, Gillian!
It looks like a magical courtain and I´m curious to see behind it.
Very original, and I have never seen this tree before.

Thanks Rita. This was taken at our verandah level, second storey. The palm tree is between the house and the pool. Photo here from 2012. Will take another one when the rain stops...
