This item is no longer available
Item code:

Also known as Lady Palm or Ground Rattan Cane this small, attractive palm is native to southern China. It has a clumping habit with bamboo-like slender stems and light green, fan-shaped fronds that are deeply divided into finger-like segments.

This multi-stemmed palm will give your garden a lush holiday feel whether planted in the ground or in a large pot. It prefers a shaded location outdoors and will also grow well in a bright spot indoors.

When used indoors and the weather is dry and hot, mist spray the foliage several times a day. This will keep it cool and help deter pests. The soil should be moist but not wet. A good way to test the soil is to poke your finger into the top inch, if it's dry then water it.
