Rhapis Palm (Rhapis excelsa)
Rhapis Palms make fantastic tropical accents due to their bamboo-like appearance. In smaller yards, they can be grown as stand alone, miniature palms. In larger landscape designs, they can be used as accents when planted near larger palm varieties. Their full appearance makes them useful as an alternative to medium size bushes or even as tropical screen hedges.
Rhapis palms are an excellent choice for planting near patios or courtyards and can be container grown both outdoors or indoors. Rhapis palms are exceptionally beautiful near water features and if you have a koi pond, these are a must! These palms are easy to grow, require minimal pruning and are cold hardy.
