    Laccospadix australasica “Atherton Palm” is a medium-sized palm that is native to the Atherton Tablelands North East Australia where you will find growing in shaded, humid moist rainforests up to 1600 meters in elevation.

    The Atherton Palm is a very attractive palm that can be either solitary or clustering. Growing up to 6 meters in height. New fronds can sometimes exhibit a vibrant red new leaf or the typical green. It slightly resembles a Howea with showy bright red seed bracts.

    A relatively easy palm to grow for milder coastal locations of the subtropics and some temperate climates. The  Atherton Palm is quite cold tolerant but needs the overhead protection of mature palms etc. Plant in a focal point of the garden long lived in pots on the deck, patio or conservatory
