Common Names:

Norfolk Island Palm

Distribution & Habitat:

Norfolk Island


Very similar to R. sapida, but stouter, and with thicker petioles. Its fruit is small, ovoid/ellipsoid, and dull red/brown in colour.


Temperate, shady, sheltered and moist. More warmth tolerant than R. sapida, and can grow successfully in sub-tropical climates.
