This fast growing, robust, and immensely popular ornamental palm with the tristichous leaf arrangement hardly needs an introduction. Dypsis decaryi will do very well in all warm temperate to tropical climates that do not experience more than just a light frost. It will quickly grow into a stunning landscape plant and also makes a very unusual and robust indoor palm.
