Ptychosperma elegans - Solitaire Palm

P. elegans is endemic to Australia, to rain forests along the coast of Queensland.  It is a  single stemmed palm with a narrow trunk of perhaps only 4 inches in diameter.  The trunk may reach heights of 40 feet in habitat.

This is another that I've had in a pot for years and years.  So long that I don't know where it came from.  In the fall of 2005 I pretty much finished clearing an area in the back that I call the "back terrace" and that is where I planted it.

A little over 2 years later it's much bigger and O so Happy :-)
