A stately palm. The landscape industry, in partnership with DOT, plans to provide seeds for large-scale groves and landscape installations, easing pressure on wild populations and encouraging people to grow this lovely palm. There are several species of native Pritchardia, many confined to a single valley or island within the state. The P. martii is endemic to Oahu; it is best to grow the species of loulu that is endemic to your area or island. Rats, pigs, and over-collection threaten loulu in the wild. This species is easy to grow, has minimal pest problems, and although slow growing, it does very well in the landscape.
