Item details

An excellent slender palm forming a single stem topped with a shuttlecock shaped crown of stiff leaves. The unusual feature of this palm is its bright scarlet red stems and leaf ribs - quite a talking point! A tropical palm, it needs a minimum temperature of 10C making it ideal as a houseplant or patio container plant moved to a frost free place in winter.

Tender Palm (min 10C)
Height: to 3m
Position: Sunny spot in moist soil

Packet of 10 seeds

Our seeds are hand packed in our unique, reusable, paper packets and a detailed growing guide is supplied to help you get the best from your seeds.


Sow at any time of year.

Pre-sowing Treatment: Soak the seeds for 48 hours preferably in a heated propagator, or on a sunny windowsill or above a radiator.

Sowing Instructions: Sow 6mm deep in small pots of moist seed compost mixed 50:50 with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or cover with a polythene bag and place in any other warm place (eg. on a windowsill above a radiator) and maintain at 25-30C. Many palms will produce a root before a shoot and germination can be erratic and take many months.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on, re-potting as necessary. Plant in good quality compost mixed 75:25 vermiculite or perlite and place in a bright spot. Keep well watered at all times. Move outdoors in summer to a sheltered spot.
