Description

A very graceful and beautiful palm forming thickets of arching deep green leaves.  As a palm for dark, damp corners of the garden this is a must-have.  Surprisingly hardy too.

 

Origin

Southern Mexico and Central America.

 

Form and size

Small, clustering palm to 2m.

 

Preferred habitat

Grows particularly well in damp, boggy areas sheltered from full sun and winds.  Can however happily tolerate full sun if kept well watered.
