This exotic palm is sure to turn your garden in to a tropical paradise for years to come! Tough and architectural, these palms will make a striking addition to any garden, with their spiky foliage creating vivid, dancing shadows in the summer sun.
With large, deeply ridged, fan-shaped leaves that will spread luxuriously out above the triple stemmed trunk, forming an impressive canopy of bright green foliage. Commonly called Cotton Palms because of their wisps of cotton-like strands that fall from each leaf, they provide a wonderful spectacle in any setting.
Despite being palms, they do need a lot of water in summer when growing, as their new leaves emerge from the centre of the trunk. Cut old leaves off at trunk as they die, and your palm tree trunk will form. Semi-hardy down to -5°C, so provide winter protection or move potted palms to shelter.
Supplied as a 75-90cm tall triple stemmed plant in a 20cm pot, with short trunk. Cut old leaves back as they die, to form the trunk.
