Majestic Kentia Palms.

Last Sunday I was checking out the Sunday Mass from St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and there behind the altar were two Kentia Palms in all their glory. Immediately I wondered where these plants originated from, and thought it was extremely likely that they came from seeds or seedlings grown on Lord Howe Island or Norfolk Island.

It’s amazing to think that these majestic palms displayed within many famous establishments throughout Europe and other parts of the world, can actually trace their ancestry back to tiny Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island.

Kentia Palms are unique, and they have a fabulous history associated with them surrounding their discovery, and how they have become the world’s supreme indoor foliage plant over the last 150 years. All because of Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island!!
