Alexander Palm

An Australian native from Queensland, it is probably going for our
award for the most beautiful of all palms. It is very hardy and loves
full sun once mature. It has a striking green crownshaft and a smooth
self cleaning light brown trunk. The flowers are cream to greenish,
male and female flowers on the same inflorescence. Flower stalk coming
from below the crownshaft, about a metre long, with bright red fruit.
The leaves are shiny green with a silvery gray underneath and up to 3m
long. This spectacular palm will be equally happy in full sun or indoor
shade. It is also a very good container plant for a patio or large
courtyard as its growth will be slowed but it will still be happy and
healthy in a pot. Landscapers often place two Alexander palms in the
same planting hole to create a jungle effect as the trunks curve away
from each other. The same can be done in pots.
