    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.
