Genus: Dypsis •
Species: leptocheilos (Hodel) Beentje & J.Dransf. •

I got this nice palm at a Fairchild plant sale. It's very cold sensitive, so it's leaves turn brown when we get a little cold spell. I finally put it in the ground this year maybe it will do better now!

Now that it is in the ground and this sweltering summer heat, it should explode in growth for you! Great picture of the crown.
