Alexandra Palm is native to Queensland and New South Wales, has classic "palm" looks, and is fast growing - making it a perfect palm for subtropical gardeners wanting to establish a native tropical garden in a hurry. Underplant with native gingers and ferns for a lush leafy effect.

It stands up to wet soils and seasonal flooding like a boss; and the bright cherry-like fruits are a favourite of metallic starling and wompoo doves.
