Dypsis Leptochilos. Teddy Bear Palm 

The Dypsis Leptochilos is a very beautiful and unique palm from Madagascar. The solitary trunk is green and bamboo-like, although it is covered in a white powder making it almost white in appearance. A dense reddish-brown velvet like hair covers the crownshaft, hence its common name of 'The Teddy Bear Palm'. This majestic palm tree when mature has a crown around 15 gracefully arching dark green glossy pinnate leaves. Leaflets are closely spaced and droop downwards. 

Considered critically endangered in the wild, it is a palm which is hard to come by and quite sought after. Relatively slow growing it can be grown happily in a greenhouse, conservatory or atrium.
