Archontophoenix Alexandrae



It’s a tall, beautiful, and fast-growing plant.

It is native to the coastal rainforest of north-eastern Australia and is much planted in tropical regions around the world. The solitary palm has a slender, grey trunk, swollen base, and ringed with leaf scars.

The large, feather-like leaves are light green above, distinctively silver-white below with many, pointed leaflets which clasp together to form an area between the trunk and leaves which is smooth and variable in color from bright green to purple or red hue. The King Alexander frond looks just like a coconut palm frond and the trunk of the palm looks similar to an Adonidia. Its tall, beautiful and fast-growing, Alexandra palm, named in honor of Princess Alexandra of Denmark, lends a tropical look to the landscape.
