Palm trees and other plants in pots

Strelitzia

The original strelitzia reginae comes from South Africa. With thick roots and large evergreen leaves, this is a slow-growing plant. Its uniquely shaped flower, borne on top of tall stems, looks like a heron's beak and comes in vibrant orange, yellow, purple and blue colours. These plants grow up to 2m, though certain species can grow as much as 8m, thanks to the false trunk formed by the base of the leaves, similar to that of the banana tree.
Cycas revoluta planted in the ground

Cycas Revoluta

Native to Japan, this plant is of the Cycadaceae family. Its appearance, with a branched stem and large pinnate leaves that spiral to the top, reminds one of the palm tree. The trunk has a diameter of about 20 cm and grows very slowly, reaching just a few centimetres of length in young plants and 6-7 m in elderly specimens (over 50 years).

The leaves grow up to 1.5 m long and are bright green, slightly curved, polished and pointed. Each individual leaf, stiff and thin, is 8-18 cm long; with those closest to the trunk resembling thorns.

Chamaerops

The typical palms of the Italian islands are a genus of Arecaceae and include a unique species, Chamaerops humilis. In Sicily, Sardinia and other sheltered places of central and southern Italy, these plants forms dense bushes, 1.5-2.0 m high. They usually have short stems which are twisted, branched and covered with a scaly down formed with the residue of dead leaves. The summit is formed by a clump of broad fan-shaped leaves which are in a state of continuous renewal. The flowers are panicle inflorescences in shape and the fruits are yellowish-red drupes.
Cocos plumosa trees planted in the ground

Cocos Feathery

L 'Arecastrum romanzoffianum, also known as Cocos plumosa, is a native of Argentina. Typical of hot countries, these plants like full sun. They are beautiful and elegant, with long willowy branches which give them a feathery look. They grow rapidly, attaining a height of up to 12 m. While they adapt to different types of soil, they are not suited to extremely cold conditions. The plant is characteristic of very decorative flowering. In the summer, branched panicles appear, covered with cream-colored flowers, followed by fruits that are orange-yellow drupes.
