Bismarck Palm

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 March 2019 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Bismarckia is a monotypic genus of flowering plant in the palm family endemic to western and northern Madagascar where they grow in open grassland. The genus is named for the first chancellor of the German Empire Otto von Bismarck and the epithet for its only species, Bismarckia nobilis, comes from Latin for 'noble'.

Spotted at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois on February 2, 2019.
