Description

For such an easy to grow and exotic looking palm we’re surprised that the Hardy Bamboo Palm isn’t seen in every garden.  Ideal for screening off the neighbours.  And no, it doesn't spread like bamboo!

 

Origin

Mexico.

 

Form and size

Clustering palm to 3m.

 

Preferred habitat

Outdoors in a semi-shaded position out of strong winds.  Very hardy and suitable for the majority of New Zealand.

Chamaedorea microspadix
