Abstract

In October 2014, the critically endangered palm Carpoxylon macrospermum growing in the Townsville Palmetum, Queensland, Australia, flowered for the first time, an event that had been much anticipated since the species first entered the collection in 1989. We provide a broad outline of the botanical history, cultivation and conservation of this species, as well as details about its occurrence in the Palmetum collection.
