Beautiful coral-like white inflorescences can be produced at any time of the year, followed by large decorative red fruits. It grows fast in moist rich soils. This elegant palm from fiji has some tolerance to cold. Mature specimens grow and flower in warm Mediterranean climates, such as Southern Spain and Sicily as it takes long cool winters and the occasional short, light frosts.
