Lady Palm (Raphis excelsa)
One of only a few palms that grow well inside, the Rahpis palm or lady palm, is an elegant and stunning choice of palm to grow. Raphis palms have long, narrow, dark green fronds that are deeply creased and form a large fan shape from the ends of the stems. New growth emerges all year round however these are renowned for being quite slow growing. Raphis palms will flower inside if given enough light, but the colourful sprays of flowers can sometimes be missed due to being hidden down in amongst the fronds.
