For a lush indoor or outdoor tropical specimen, look no further than the Lady Palm. This native of Southern China, is hardy and very adaptable to most climatic and environmental conditions.
It grows in clumps and each stem is covered in rough matted fibres which is the external sheath of the leaf. The leaves are palmate in shape, shiny green and deeply divided. This variety is slightly different from the Lady Palm (Raphis excelsia) in that its leaves have pointy ends and the slender stems are taller.
