Carpoxylon is one of the most elegant palms on earth. It is a solitary palm with a very tall dark green crownshaft and regularly arching leaves. Its spreading inflorescences and large red fruits are also very attractive. At the end of the XX century it was considered extinct until it was rediscovered in the gardens of some natives in Vanuatu, who grew it for its beauty and symbolic value. Now Carpoxylon has recently started to become a popular ornamental palm. Who would have said it ! Despite its origin located in a South Pacific archipelago, it is very resistant to dry and cool weather and thrives in subtropical climates, such as here in the Canary Islands.
