- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Originally described in 1875 from fruits found on the island of Aneityum (Anatom) in Vanuatu (New Hebrides), Carpoxylon macrospermum had remained in obscurity for more than one hundred years before it was finally rediscovered in 1987 on Espiritu Santo in the same group of islands.
- A graceful, tall, emergent,pinnately leaved palm with a well developed shiny, green crownshaft. Leaves strongly arcuate toward the apex, distinctive stiffly erect pinnae. Fruiting parts held below the crownshaft, staged, twice branched, with large fruits becoming bright orange on maturity.
- It has a smooth, fairly robust trunk that is around 35 cm (14 in.) across and will reach a height of about 20 m. The full crown of elegantly recurving, strongly keeled leaves is held by a long, robust, green crownshaft.
- It is one of the best of all ornamental palms, suitable mainly for the tropical garden, and holds great potential of becoming every bit as popular as the Foxtail palm (Wodyetia) in years to come.
- The eccentric, subapical stigmatic scar of Carpoxylon macrospermum, immediately distinguishes it from Veitchia species, which all have apical stigmatic scars.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
