Rhopalostylis sapida sp. Chatham Is. Information
This form of the New Zealand Nikau palm comes from the Chatham Islands, which lie 800 kilometres out from the east coast of New Zealand and 44°S making this the most southerly growing palm in the world. The palm can also be found on Pitt Island 20km south of Chatham Island. The trunk is more robust than the mainland form, and it grows much faster. This is the most cold tolerant Nikau palm.
