The beautiful striking Bottle Palm tree is from the Mascarene Islands, which are in the Indian Ocean just East of Madagascar. It is a very unique palm because of the rather large bulge of the trunk. The Bottle Palm is nearly extinct in its natural habitat but is now widely commercially grown for its ornamental use. The Bottle Palm is very slow growing and adds flavor with uniqueness to any setting. The most distinguishing feature of the Bottle Palm is the bulged section of its trunk. This bulged section changes in colors throughout its life from gray, green, and even purple. From Real Palm Trees.
