As I Wander...

Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.

Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
commercial buildings.

Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.

This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)

Secret of The Orient: Raphis Palm Book

Came across this very interesting website introducing a book, titled above by Lynn McKamey.

It has helped answered and enlightened myself with regard to some of differences I'd noted about the Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa) species but unable to identify specifically so.

Feel this site has opened up more exciting possibilities for me to look out for, such as, the dwarf, mini dwarf, green, mini green and variegated varieties plus many many more besides the 'standard' specimen.

Thus, for my personal reference and for those interested or considering versatile indoor palms, link below is "raphis extraordinaire" !
