Peach Creek Palm
Native to rain and swamp forests at low and medium elevations on the Cape York Peninsula, this robust Archontophoenix is generally similar to A. alexandrae, but easily distinguished by the larger seeds. It forms a tall, smooth trunk which holds a long, pale green crownshaft and a dense crown of elegantly arching leaves. It is well suited to cultivation in tropical regions but, like A. alexandrae, it is adaptable and will also do well in most warm temperate zones. With a plentiful supply of water it will develop at breathtaking speed.
