Dypsis decaryi or Triangle palm gets its name due to the way the leaves are grown almost upright from the trunk and arching gracefully outward. The leaf bases are arranged in three vertical columns set approximately 120 degrees apart on the main stem, forming a triangular shape.
The Triangle palm originated in Madagascar. Madagascar is home to several interesting and unique palms that grow in the open plains. The Triangle palm is just one more such palm.
