This fast-growing palm tree quickly grows to a height of 30-40', the smooth, slender grey trunk topped with 10-foot-long, spreading green fronds that are sharply arched, creating a curious effect in the landscape. The inconspicuous white flowers appear from spring through fall and are followed by the production of bright red fruits. Carpentaria palm always looks best planted in groups of 3 or more of differing heights to create a "grove." Because the foliage is not dense, they are perfect for use as lawn specimens, since grass will not be shaded out underneath their canopy.
Carpentaria palms are "thirsty" palms that demand regular irrigation, but will not do well in permanently wet or swampy soils. Full sun is best. Because they grow exceedingly fast, carpentaria palms should not be sited next to small buildings, as they will quickly become out-of-scale to the building.
