    Lamar, looks to me what is commonly called hurricane palm, or Dictyosperma album

    Certainly looks that way to me as well. One of my favorites, even though it is widely available. And a very fast grower.

    Yes, indeed, Lamar. Although I don't ever recall seeing the red coloration on an inflorescence before. It is, without a doubt a Dictyosperma though.
