Clustering Fishtail Palm Overview

This evergreen palm, is a large, erect species that grows up to between 4-10m tall. Produces clustered stems with 4m long foliage, coloured rich green, leaves are are divided into distinctive fishtail-like, triangular leaflets and long, hanging panicles of small, greeny, cream to yellow flowers. These palms only flower once in their lifetime and typically die after flowering. However they produce multiple stems before doing so, growing with a clumping habit. Flowering begins at the top of the trunk and proceeds downwards, sometimes for several years. The fruit matures to a round, red drupe (fruit with an outer fleshy part that surrounds a hard shell with a seed inside) about 1 cm wide and containing a single seed.
