Description Carludovica Palmata is found Peru and Colombia. It is a palm-like monocot plant; it is not a true palm. Its leaves are different from the leaves of true palms, and unlike true palms, it does not develop a woody trunk. Its leaves are stiff, plaite and deeply cut into from two to five divisions. Carludovica Palmata has male and female flowers on the same plant. Flowers are red and densely arranged on auxiliary spadixes that usually have two or more deciduous spathes.
Carludovica Palmata Palm is notable as one of the hardiest feather palms, tolerating temperatures down to about −10 °C; it is widely cultivated in warm temperate regions. For example, it is commonly grown on the East Coast of the United States as far north as New York and Seattle, Washington.
