Large, rigid palm with a smooth grey trunk and upright arching dark green fronds that has been used extensively in Aust landscaping. These palms produce large clusters of fruits that turn orange and spread readily via bats and after dropping on the ground. A native alternative should be chosen instead for QLD and NSW. This palm can be untidy, retains hanging dead fronds and fermenting dropped fruits. If you do chose to use, please remove and dispose of the seeds. Also known as Arecastrum romanzoffianum.
