Dypsis cabadae is a water-loving palm species that was almost unknown here 35 years ago. Its a very attractive clumping palm with dark green stems with white rings marking where fronds once were gives this palm a bamboo-like appearance.  It reaches 30-40 ft. at maturity and can be grown in light shade to sun. It is native to islands off the coast of Madagascar, and is one of the faster growing palms in S. Florida.

Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this palm in stock.
