XL Black-fiber Sugar Palm Tree (arenga pinnatax)

(XL Specimen, 8” Pot) Big, fast growing tropical tree that is used in Asia to produce a crude kind of sugar from the sap of the cut off inflorescenses. The trunk is covered with old leafbases and fibres in the fashion of Trachycarpus fortunei, but on a giant scale, and the long, pinnate leaves, are silvery on the underside. Makes a very interesting potted plant when young, and an impressive, large tree for the tropical garden when older.
