We adore the pure class of this stunning Areca palm or Dypsis Palm! You probably recognise this palm even if you don’t know the name! It’s well-loved, graceful and elegant - think 1920s hotel, mirrors and dinner jackets! It will give your home that sophisticated feel, like walking into a movie set! Palm house plants are always popular and the Areca Palm is no exception.
As an extra benefit, not only is this plant shouting style, it’s also one of the best houseplants for purifying the air according to a study by Nasa.
It’s also suitable if you have cats and dogs as it’s non-toxic which is unusual in a houseplant.
Attractive, plentiful fronds sprout from bamboo stems to make the Areca palm a wonderful centrepiece for a room, to give it that high society feel.
Areca palm hails from tropical and subtropical regions but can also be found as close to home as the South of France!
We absolutely love the pure showbiz look of this palm, it brings immediate impact to a room and gives it that glitz and glamour - the perfect accessory to your home!
These are exceptional specimens, and hard to find in such big sizes
