Common Name: Macarthur Palm
Availabilty: In Stock
The Macarthur Palm is an evergreen palm that is incredibly versatile. Hardy to most elements, it thrives outdoors as well as indoors. Plant it in a tub to keep it smaller, keep it inside for a tropical feel, or plant in borders along the garden or driveway. The beautiful clumping habit results in multiple shoots, creating quite a spectacle, whether indoors or out. They are also one of the smallest palms, rendering it an ideal option for home gardens.
With a maximum height of 6- 12 metres outdoors, (though kept small through tub planting if desired), the Macarther Palm is an elegant and graceful palm... uniquely adaptable to a multitude of environments. Insignificant white flowers bloom almost year round, followed by red berry-seeds that are incredibly attractive to birds.
Moderately wind tolerant, sensitive to frost. Most moist soils; mulch in Summer. Full sun preferred, adapts to part shade.
