    One of the photos on this page shows the plant with gift wrap. This is not included in the price,however you may add gift wrap (for an additional charge of £4.95) during the order process.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing to average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    The upright, unbranching stem is clothed with fan-shaped, rich green fronds that can grow up to 75cm long. As the plant matures, it will also produce pendulous clusters of yellow flowers near the leaf bases in summer, which on female plants will be followed by near-black fruits. A wonderful plant for exotic and jungle-style planting schemes, it can tolerate a short periods of light frosts, but will need protection in more exposed areas.

  • Garden care: In autumn wrap plants with a protective layer of hessian or frost fleece and apply a deep, dry mulch of straw or bracken around the base of the plant.

What height does the palm grow to please.

Paslode

Hello there This palm can grow to 20m x 2.5m eventually in it's native sub-tropical forests but it is unlikely to reach anything like this in the UK.

Is it possible to grow this in a large pot for a Mediterranean courtyard look?

MadHen

Hello, Yes, it will be fine for several years in a large pot, provided it is kept well fed and watered. It does however want to get pretty big in time, so in time it may be happiest in the ground.

at what size is it safe to plant outside

jumbo

Hello, These plants are not fully hardy here in the UK, so in theory the plant could be at risk during cold winters - no matter what size it is. Having said that, I grew one quite successfully in my sheltered London garden, so it really depends on finding the right spot for them - or if yu live in a colder part of the country, providing a thick insulating mulch around the roots and wrapping them in hessian or frost fleece during winter.
