E1. Macarthur Palm

Rating ( vote)

This attractive small palm is noted for its multiple, slim, ringed grey trunks which are topped with soft green, feathery, flat, broad leaves with tips that appear jagged and torn.  Although able to reach 30 feet in height, Macarthur Palm is most often seen 10 to 15 feet in height with a variable spread.  

The two-foot-long, branched flower stalks hang below the crownshaft throughout the year and contain small, white blooms.  These blooms give way to bright red, showy sprays of half-inch-long fruits, which ripen year-round.
