Alloschmidia glabrata


A very rare palm that grows in the north of New Caledonia between sea level and 1200 m (3900 ft.) in wet forest. Its tall, slender trunk supposts a long crownshaft and about 10 elegant, ascending feather leaves. Because ripe seeds are extremely difficult to find, this species is almost never offered for sale. A must-have for collectors.
