Major Jenkins' Palm
Arguably, this stately and rare species from the montane forests of northeastern
India, Burma and Thailand (to 1200m / 4000ft a.s.l.) is the most beautiful
of all the Livistona. It produces a dense crown of very large, flat, circular
leaves that are only shallowly split, and a tall, columnar, gray trunk.
Suitable for a range of climates from warm temperate to tropical, it will
undoubtedly be hugely popular and much in demand. We can now offer true,
wild-collected seeds of this fan palm from NE-India in commercial quantities
and at an excellent price. In our trial, the marble sized seeds begin
germinating after just a few days! Hopefully, our introduction will mean
that this stunning palm will, in the years to come, be a little more common
in gardens around the globe.
