    I always liked these palms in a small grouping. They are finally coming into their own and looking established. I don't know why they aren't used more often in the typical garden since they don't require very much space.

    Previously known as D. florencei and D. paludosa, these have a pinnate and entire leaf form. They have been a trouble free fast grower in my cooler tropical climate.

    Dean, in HI, don't they blend in with the Ti plants?

    They do look similar - but no mistaken them in person.

    In Hawaii, everything blends in with everything else, even all the weeds. :)
