Native to the understorey of higher elevation rainforests on the Solomon Islands, this stunning palm has a green
crownshaft with the most beautiful arching leaves with very wide segments, a slender green trunk, and is supported
by tall stilt roots. Even though essentially a child of the tropics, P. insolita grows to higher elevations than other
Physokentia and could therefore also be able to live in mild, humid subtropical/warm temperate climes. Seeds of this
palm are very rarely available.
