Friend or Foe?

The Golden Cane Palm  Dypsis lutescens comes from Madagascar and is sold as a potted plant or a neat little edge palm.  The trouble is that it grows, if you read the fine print to a fine little 12 metre high hedge, and it keeps on growing, sending out suckers in all directions until it becomes a thicket fit for hiding tigers.    Then it starts to drop fronds, just enough so that they don't fit in the wheelie bin at the end of the week.

Sigh, it looks good though.

Good lord, that passes the line between pleasant plant and serious problem!
