Unusual Rhapis ID


Recommended Posts


I have been trying to identify this Rhapis for some time now and figured I should post here. This is a large clump with maybe 20 mature canes and numerous young shoots. The plant must be around 12 feet tall, if not taller. The leaves are large with a relatively low leaflet count. Typically 3-4 at most. Sometimes just 2. It was originally bought from a little old lady at a flea market in Berkeley. It is hard finding much info on Rhapis online. There are so many cultivars and not nearly as many pictures as names that I can find. I dont think its a species? Anyhow some guidance would be appreciated.
