Rhapis Palm (Rhapis excelsa)
The Rhapis Palm, botanical name Rhapis excelsa, also known as the “Lady Palm”, make fantastic tropical accents whether used as an indoor houseplant/office plant or grown in a tropical garden setting. From China, this small palm is noted for its eye-catching deep green foliage and bamboo-like clumps. It’s a slow growing, elegant palm and also one of the finest houseplants and office plants available. Homeowners that choose to use this as an indoor houseplant will appreciate its ability to withstand neglect and poor light, as well as its striking beauty that is sure to enhance any area.
Mature Lady palms are an excellent choice to create a tropical privacy hedge or a lush tropical environment. Due to their slow growth rate, buy as big as you can for maximum beauty and effect.

These Lady Palms are easy to grow, require minimal pruning and are cold hardy.
