    I was lucky enough to find one of these fantastic palms that sports a new red leaf. You don't often see these in cultivation. And less often are they the "Red Leaf Form." If you don't know this palm, the leaves get humongous - with stories of the indigenous people in So. America (where it comes from) using them for sails on their canoes when traversing lakes with the wind.

    kwtimo and junglegal like this.
