(15m**AD) Wodyetia bifurcata is a hugely attractive native palm with a smooth closely ringed trunk. The fronds are hugely attractive with their cut off leaf formation. Native to rocky areas of North East QLD where it sets down deep roots to offset the long dry period between monsoonal rains. This Palm has only been cultivated in recent times and the cold sensitiveness is still being assessed. The most advanced specimen planted in Brisbane and Sydney are both doing well. Requires a well drained soil in full sun. These are large plants in 140mm pots, 400mm tall.
