Kentia Palm (Howea forsteriana)

The dens and parlors of Victorian-style houses are popular sites for the elegant, rich-colored kentia palm, also known as the thatch palm. Its scientific name derives from its origin on Lord Howe Island in the South Pacific. A low-light lover, this plant gets more beautiful with age as each new leaf grows larger than the preceding one.
