Traditional palm enthusiasts may be in shock: All Gulubia are now Hydriastele? And all Gronophyllum and Siphokentia too? This palm had to become Hydriastele vitiensis to avoid confusion with Gronophyllum microcarpum, which has now become Hydriastele microcarpa. All clear? Well, if you got over all Madagascar palms becoming Dypsis, you will get over this one soon. Who could differentiate between those genera anyway? Whatever the botanists latest conclusions, this palm from rainforests on Viti Levu, Fiji, will remain just the same gorgeous tropical beauty it was with the old name. Best suited to a tropical climate, it will take your breath away if you are lucky enough to be able to grow it.
