Areca Palm- Chrysalidocarpus lutescens

Also known as Bamboo Palm or Golden Cane Palm, the Areca Palm is a beautiful choice of an indoor palm tree to bring a touch of the tropics to your home. Originating from Madagascar, these simple palms grow in clusters of long slender green stalks with light wispy feather-like fronds creating the appearance of large bird feathers. The soft texture and movement of Areca Palms make them a popular houseplant choice for interior designers and architects and can provide lovely greenery and foliage for many years.
