Popular and unusual palms from Yamashita Nursery

Red Sealing Wax PalmSealing-Wax Palm, Cyrtostachys renda

This slow-growing, moisture-loving palm is native to lowland rain forests and coastal swamps in Thailand and Malaysia. It is very tolerant of boggy conditions and can even be grown directly in ponds. It likes partial shade when young, but adapts to full sun when mature. The long, brilliant red crown-shafts are the main attraction to this exceptionally beautiful palm.

ArecaAreca Palm, Dypsis lutescens

The palm commonly called Areca, Dypsis lutescens, is also known as Bamboo Palm or Golden Cane Palm. Arecas can make a beautiful, tropical screening hedge when planted 6 to 10 feet apart. It is also beautiful when grown as a single clump, and can be grown indoors as well. It loves water and sun to look its best.
