Livistona washingtonia

For sale by Heather R

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

Palm saplings grown from seeds collected from the fruits of 20m+ specimen trees in Andalucia that a friend identified for me as Livistona washingtonia. They are definitely thread palms but I couldn't find much info on the species, it seems obscure. The palms are currently in tall 3L rose pots, so should live happily as container plants without repotting for some time. I have 2 of these available of very similar size.
