New Corozo palm seeds available

Aiphanes eggersii

Corozo Palm

A small to medium-sized, clustering palm native to the understorey of seasonally dry forests on the Pacific coast in Ecuador. If forms slender stems to 8 cm in diameter. The slightly plumose leaves hold up to 65 wedge-shaped leaflets that are attractively clustered in small groups. The stem, leafsheath and rachis are covered in black spines. An attractive and easily grown palm for the tropics that resembles A. horrida (= A. aculeata) but is readily told apart by its clustering habit.

King Palm

A very popular palm from Australia with grass green, feather shaped leaves with silver undersides and slender crown shafts. The small bright red fruits are produced in large quantities.

Florida Palm

Thrinax radiata

Florida Thatch Palm

A very pretty, slender-stemmed palm with glossy, dark green, circular fan leaves that have drooping leaf tips. The Florida Thatch Palm is distributed over much of the northern Caribbean and is a reliable and easy-to-grow ornamental for tropical and warm subtropical areas. A great palm for coastal regions.

Fans Palm

Livistona chinensis
Chinese fan Palm, Fountain Palm
A much-loved fan palm that has been popular since Victorian times and makes a superb potted palm for the home or terrace. In warmer climates and over a period of years, it grows into a handsome, medium-sized tree with a slender trunk. The common name is something of a misnomer since it is actually native to Japan's Ryukyu Islands and Volcano Islands. The broad, lime green leaves have elegantly drooping and curled tips, which gives rise to its other name, "Fountain palm." The fruits, which are produced in large numbers, are blue. Livistona chinensis shows a good tolerance to cold and frost and may be used in the sheltered temperate garden, but will also happily accept hot and humid tropical conditions.

Livistona eastonii

Mitchell Plateau Fan Palm
A medium-sized, slender fan palm native only to the Mitchell Plateau in the Kimberley Ranges in northern Western Australia, where it grows in open, seasonally dry Eucalypt forest, occasionally in very dense stands. It forms a very slender, solitary trunk which with age can reach 20 m tall and supports a small, open crown of stiff leaves on long stalks. It is particularly well adapted to fire, which is a rather frequent occurrence in its habitat and helps the palm to compete with Eucalyptus and other trees. It is rarely seen in cultivation, perhaps on account of its slow growth, but would make a nice, robust and drought tolerant ornamental for the small, tropical garden.

Livistona decora
Ribbon fan Palm
A graceful, very fast-growing, tall palm from eastern Australia with finely divided, weeping fan leaves. It is easy to germinate, fast and easy to grow, and very adaptable and hardy in every respect--really a nearly foolproof palm. It has already been successfully tried as a landscape and even as an indoor plant on a commercial ba


Livistona lanuginosa
Cape River fan Palm

A robust Livistona from inland areas in N-Queensland, Australia, closely related to L. mariae. The Cape River fan Palm has fairly stiff, waxy, blueish leaves and large purplish fruits. It is best suited to drier climates and quite cold and even frost tolerant. Seeds are rarely available.

Livistona inermis
Wispy fan Palm

The Wispy fan palm is well named. It has a very narrow trunk and a small crown of deeply split, fan shaped leaves with very narrow segments.

Alsmithia longipes (= Heterospathe longipes) A smallish palm with a slender, solitary trunk to 3.5 m (12 ft) tall that holds an open crown of ascending, bright green, pinnate leaves that unfold in a brilliant red. The fruits are rather large and bright red, the single seed is heavily sculpted and very easy to recognize. Alsmithia is very rare in cultivation as well as in its wild habitat on the Fijian Islands of Taveuni and Vanua Levu, where only a few hundred individuals persist, growing on steep slopes in extremely wet, dense rainforest to about 500 m (1600 ft.) a.s.l. Originally described by legendary palm botanist Hal Moore as Alsmithia longipes, it has recently been transferred to the genus Heterospathe, a questionable move, despite some DNA data in support. In cultivation, Alsmithia does best in a sheltered spot in the tropics.

Alloschmidia glabrata


A very rare palm that grows in the north of New Caledonia between sea level and 1200 m (3900 ft.) in wet forest. Its tall, slender trunk supposts a long crownshaft and about 10 elegant, ascending feather leaves. Because ripe seeds are extremely difficult to find, this species is almost never offered for sale. A must-have for collectors.
