Dypsis (butterfly palm)

Wikipedia Abstract

Dypsis is a genus of flowering plants in the Arecaceae family. They are slender, evergreen palms with yellow flowers carried in panicles amongst the pinnate leaves. Many Dypsis species have aerial branching (above the main trunk), a rare growth habit among palms. Some have marcescent leaves that remain attached after death and trap litter for nutrients.The etymology is obscure but may be related to the Greek dypto ‘I dive’ or dyptes ‘diver’.
