The indigo palm split from purple hornwarts. Due to the success of purple liverwarts, it grew up rather than around. It has grown palm-like leaves, but still grows in long interconnected roots. These can get broken and split every now and then, but whole forests will be connected by a single interconnected root system. Thus it reproduces only by budding off. Due to the fires of the purple bubbleshrub, it has grown a thicker bark, but it is not as resistant as bubbleshrub. This fire actually helps split up the long lines of interconnected roots. It is the tallest land plant to date and is too tall for the herbivorous plent to eat its leaves.

Living Relatives (click to show/hide)

These are randomly selected, and organized from lowest to highest shared taxon. (This may correspond to similarity more than actual relation)

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
