Split-Leaf Cyclanthus or Cyclanthus bipartitus is an unusual and hard to find plant, very seldom offered for sale in the UK. It looks like a palm but is in fact in a small family on its own, Cyclanthus. It has handsome long upright leaves that are split down the centre atop a long stem. It grows about 6 feet tall in a tight clump. Native to tropical Latin America and the West Indies.
