Kentia "Paradise Palm"

Howea forsterana

The Kentia Palm is widely known for its indoor use and has been used for more than 100 years as an interiorscape subject. Its astounding graceful fountain-like aspect, with its great drooping leaflets, makes it one of the most elegant palms. Its silhouette is beautiful when grouped in three of varying heights. The Kentia is also a welcome site when designed into outdoor landscapes in warmer climates and protected locations.
