200-year-old palm blooming in Kyiv

200-year-old palm broke into flower in the Fomin Botanical Garden in Kyiv.
The fan palm was planted in Kyiv greenhouse in 1839. However, the tree blossomed for the first time only a century later, after the reconstruction of the greenhouse.
The Kyiv fan palm is not only the oldest but also the tallest palm tree in Europe. Now its growth has slowed and the height reaches 30 meters. Usually palm blooms in January, as in Australia where she came from.
