    Dypsis decipiens, Manambe Palm originates from Madagascar (home too many of the rarest and most unusual plants in the world).

     A tall, mostly solitary, but occasionally clustering (usually with just two trunks) palm that can reach heights around 60 feet tall. The palm has a grey thick trunk that can develop a large bulge in either the centre or bottom of the trunk. The crownshaft is a greenish-white colour, usually whiter as a younger tree that fades to a greenish-white as it ages. The branches are long and arching with stiff ascending leaves that can droop with age or harsh weather.

    As a young palm, it is easily grown if given a shady frost free area and moist but well-drained soil. With age, this palm enjoys a sunny moist, but the well-drained area where it will get full sun for most of the day. Once established It is very cold hardy and can take mild freeze and frost with no to minimal damage when established. It is slow growing but well worth the wait.
