Bump anyone in Hawaii? they are not like finding the holiest of grails lol You would feel a lot better if you stopped hoarding these and spread  the love to all palm talkers interested Kidding aside I am still looking :interesting:

I've been looking for R. violacea for years too but they are almost non-existent in the US. I knew a palm vendor who had an immature one in his yard but he has since sold that property. They come from far eastern Cuba and are probably much like other Roystonea spp except for the purple crownshaft. That area of Cuba is pretty much shut down by Cuban govt. and military (think Guantanamo) so no outsiders are allowed. I hope someday seeds may become available.

Must have been before my time. Never seen them reliably listed anywhere.
