Adonidia merrillii, Veitchia merrilli, Christmas Palm

Click to see full-size image Adonidia merrillii, Veitchia merrilli
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Christmas Palm
Origin: Philippines
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterPalm or palm-likeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Adonidia comes from Adonis, the handsome sun god of the ancient Greeks. This is neat looking, compact palm that resembles a dwarf version of the royal palm (Roystonea regia) which it matches in beauty. Christmas palm grows to an overall height of only about 16 ft. By late fall fruit are beginning to ripen and by late December are bright and brilliant red - like ornaments on a Christmas palm! It is a popular landscaping item in the capital of Philippines, which inspires another popular name, the Manila palm.

Christmas palm is moderately salt tolerant. Prefers full sun but will take some shade.

Small stature makes it perfect for use in small scale plantings. It is sometimes closely planted in groups of two or three.

Good specimen container plant. The formal symmetry of Christmas palm is nicely showcased when it is grown in a container. Indoors or out this is a glamourous container plant that can maintain its looks despite hardship and neglect.

Allagoptera arenaria, Seashore Palm, Cocos Arenaria

Click to see full-size image Allagoptera arenaria
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Seashore Palm, Cocos Arenaria
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterPalm or palm-likeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Seashore palm - restinga, a low, coastal scrub, and sand dunes near the beach are the native habitat of this attractive, small, bushy palm in southeastern Brazil. Its forking trunk usually grows underground, rarely upright and visible. The elegantly arching, bushy leaves are dark gray-green above and silvery-waxy below and the fruits are borne in curious, dense clusters on the tip of long, upright stalks. While the seeds tend to be somewhat erratic to germinate and seedling growth is fairly slow, the plants speed up considerably after a couple of years. The Restinga Palm prefers a sunny spot in sandy soil and will adapt to any tropical and subtropical climate. It is very resistant wind and salt and will look its best even under full coastal exposure. See picture.
