Livistona decipiens - Ribbon Palm

This palm is endemic to eastern Queensland, Australia.  It grows in open woods as well as swampy areas.  As with other Livistonas it is a single trunked palm with a trunk that can reach up to 50 feet in height. 

It LOVES the little terrace I placed it on in Oct of 2005

In just 2 years and 3 months (Feb. 2008) it has grown into this "monster"  :-)
