Why We Love It

Here it is: the chic, classic, timeless palm. The Edwardians loved it. The Victorians loved it. And we love it too.

Coming straight from the Palm House, our Phoenix roebelenii, or Pygmy Date Palm, will bring an instant look of the tropics to any contemporary living space.

This South East Asian palm has a slim trunk, supporting an arching headdress of lush feathery foliage; creating the perfect centrepiece to your houseplant collection.

Even better, it's pretty easygoing and fuss-free too.

Pygmy Date Palm facts

Symbol of life...

In ancient Mesopotamia and ancient Eygpt, palms represented fertility and long life.

A River Runs through it...

They grow well naturally in flowing water and are found along riverside and cliff habitats in their native environment and they can survive floods.

Yet they also thrive indoors as houseplants, but don't take that as a go ahead to overwater.

  • Current height: 140 cm, current spread: 110 cm
  • You wont need to 'plant' this houseplant. Leave the plant in its nursery pot, and put the whole thing into a decorative pot to create "the look"
  • This palm likes the light, so a west or south facing window is the perfect spot
  • Water your palm when the top of the soil is dry, and make sure it's not left sitting in water
  • Pets and kids? This plant is non-toxic, so safe around pets and kids
