Licuala peltata var. peltata
One of the larger Licuala, this species can reach a height of up to 10 m (33ft). It ranges from the mountains of Northeastern India down to the Malay Peninsula but is rather uncommonly seen. Its solitary trunk carries a spreading crown of large, circular fan leaves that are divided into numerous, wide segments. It is one of the most robust and easy-to-grow Licualas, though quite slow. Our seeds come from populations in India, at the northern end of its range, and can be expected to produce the hardiest plants.
