Well, what an interesting question!
My research show that the Foxtail Palm was shows that the world was quite unaware of this species of palm until 1978 when a
Aboriginal man brought it to Botanists and the world's attention.

It was originally found only in a very small region of Austrailia. After it become known the Foxtail Palms became so popular that there was a black market for the seeds.
