Kentia Forsteriana

A specimen plant that is best displayed on its own. It is very robust and will tolerate a very wide range of conditions.
A typical palm with pinnate fronds growing successively larger on slender stalks. The well-spaced pinnae are long, narrow and tapering to a point. They have a waxy or leathery feel and are quite flexible.

In nature these palms can reach a height of eighteen metres and produce a two metre long flower spike, but in cultivation they grow to a more sedate three metres.

Howea forsteriana grows wild only on Lord Howe Island in the Pacific. It was discovered along the coast of the island which has a total area of only five square miles. From this tenuous hold on life the species reached Europe in 1772 - thanks to the Forsters, the father and son team of German naturalists sailing with Captain Cook on his second voyage to the Pacific Islands.
