Atherton Laccospadix australasica / Palms
A beautiful fine leaved North Queensland palm well suited to the suburban garden.
Solitary or sometimes clustering slender trunked palm, the Atherton is considered the Kentia’s ‘little brother’. Hardier to frost with age, this palm is very suited to underplanting larger palms or a smaller garden situation.
We only have clustering specimens available.
