Range DescriptionCoastal semi-dry region around Noumea and Anse Vata in south-east New Caledonia. A lot of urban development has taken place in this region. Anse Vata is a fully developed beach resort area and the species was last collected there in 1925. It was collected in 1926 in the Montravel Reserve. It was introduced into cultivation in the 1860s in the UK, where it became a popular table pot plant. It may still be in cultivation. The specimens from Bourail are most likely to be S. apioidea.
