Palm: Howea, Kentia, Paradise Palm Howea forsterana

FAMILY: ARECACEAE (Palm Family)

Native to Lord Howe Island, off the eastern coast of Australia, this feather palm has light and lacy fronds, which give it a delicate appearance. Howea palms are popular with florists, as they do well in pots and help give indoor areas a tropical feel.
