Hardy palms are invaluable as structural plants in tropical-style gardens and look effective when planted with bananas, bamboos and New Zealand flax.
Palms are evergreen, mostly tropical plant in the family Palmae (also known as Arecaceae). There are over 2500 species of palms. Most Palm are tree-like, with single trunks and either fan shaped (palmate) or feather shaped (pinnate) compound leaves.
Larger palm trees can make dramatic statements in landscapes often as a centrepiece, and a smaller palms can be grown in containers or even taken indoors.
