Zone 10

In the photo, there are two carpentarias in the center of the photo, tall and thin palms

The carpentaria is from northern rainforest in Australia, is rated at about 40 feet and is a solitary palm. Most often, the palm is planted in groups of two or more, three being common. It is popular for landscapers to use this palm as a nice contrast

It is a fast growing palm with few problems. Is is not good near the salt spray, needs consistent water, tropical warmth, but is tolerant of many soils
