Joey Palm - Johannesteijsmannia altifrons
Commonly known as Diamond Joey Palm, and Joey Palm, Johannesteijsmannia altifrons is a species of palm in the Arecaceae Family, native to montane rainforest in S. Thailand, peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, and Borneo.
One of the most stunning and spectacular palms in the world, J. altifrons has large, simple, undivided leaves that can reach a length of more than 6m/20ft, rising directly from an underground rootstock. These huge, very leathery, roughly diamond-shaped leaves are pleated along their length, giving the most bizarre appearance.
