Hyophorbe Indica. Champagne Palm
The Hyophorbe Indica is a very rare relative of the well known Bottle and Spindle Palms threatened by habitat loss. A slender solitary trunk is light grey to light tan in colour beautifully ringed with widely spaced dark leaf scars. The crownshaft on mature palms usually bulges at the base is 2-3ft tall, being variable in colour. The crown is made up of between 5- 6 long, gracefully arching strong pinnate leaves. Leaflets are light to dark green, arranged producing a narrow 'V' shape in cross section. This ornamental palm is relatively slow growing and will make a great specimen for containers as an indoor palm given enough light. Can be grown on a patio or terrace through summer and brought inside through winter. A great one for the collectors.
