Rhopaloblaste sp. (Tenaru)
An outstandingly beautiful, tall, slender palm from montane rainforest on Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Its
long, elegantly arching, very finely divided, feather-shaped leaves form a rounded crown atop a brownish crownshaft.
The nutmeg-sized fruits are easy to germinate and subsequent growth is rapid. Young plants also make most attractive
potted plants that can be kept indoors for a while.
