aka Livistona kimberlyana. This is one of the most attractive species in the genus, with a crown of over 35, arching, wispy, blue-green ,deeply divided leaves on a relatively slender trunk, up to 45' tall. It is one of the more fastidious species being difficult to grow in a Mediterranean climate except of the inland deserts are very hot, coastal regions. It's pretty slow growing and cold sensitive. It is also very rare in cultivation (difficult to even find).
