Copernicia alba - Caranday Palm

You can find this palm in habitat in monsoonal savannas in Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.  I can reach heights of 100 feet and have a trunk diameter of up to one foot.

I planted this from seed, but I can't remember the sourse.  The first picture shows it being planted out in 1998.

One year in the ground showed fantastic growth.

Five and 1/2 years later it had about 5 feet of trunk.
