Fiji or from Tonga.It is impressive for the crown of luxuriant
foliage, consisting of huge, pleated fronds each up to 5 ft (1.5 m)

The flowering branches are shorter than those of many other pritchardias, not extending beyond the fronds and bearing dense
clusters of yellow flowers at their ends; the fruits are small,
black and round.
