Plants New Extra Large

We've a number of new species to announce along with new, grades and the return of some old favourites.

New Additions

Chamaedorea hooperiana (Maya Palm)
One of the most beautiful palms for our climate we're excited to be able to offer this as a large grade for indoors or outdoors. It's definitely a palm that appreciates a little shade and protection from strong winds but remains quite adaptable for all but the brightest locations. As a clustering palm one may cut back older growth to keep it manageable inside and promote new shoots.

Chamaerops humilis (Mediterranean Fan Palm)
A very tough and slow-growing palm that will thrive practically anywhere. A refreshing addition to the range of palms that will grow in the South Island.

Chambeyronia macrocarpa (Flamethrower Palm)
At last! After a long wait these magnificent palms are now ready. Limited numbers and ready as and when plants become available.

Dracaena draco (Dragon Tree)
The popular Dragon Tree. Suitable as an indoor plant or for dry, sunny gardens.

Ensete ventricosum (Abyssinian Banana)
The familiar and tough Abyssinian Banana. A fast-growing ornamental banana for frost-free locations. Does well as an indoor plant if the roots are restricted in a small pot. Limited quantities with more available in spring.

Howea forsteriana (Kentia Palm)
The Kentia palm needs no introduction. Ours are finally ready!

Sabal minor (Dwarf Palmetto Palm)
Another very hardy and tough palm for all New Zealand conditions. Painfully slow in containers but they'll bulk out and put on good growth within a couple of years of planting.

Trachycarpus fortunei (Chinese Windmill Palm)
A popular and reliable palm for cooler climates.

Wallichia densiflora (Dwarf Fishtail Palm)
We're thrilled to be able to offer this truly gorgeous palm. With age this species forms into a large bush. Incredibly exotic looking and perfect for semi-shaded gardens.

Zamia furfuracea (Cardboard Fern)
After a long wait our Cardboard 'Ferns' are now available as solid plants. Larger grades also available upon request.

New Grades

Archontophoenix cunninghamiana (Bangalow Palm)
Available as an indoor palm for those south of Auckland.

Beaucarnea recurvata (Ponytail Palm)
We're now offering a smaller (less than one metre) grade of this popular plant. Suitable for indoors as well as outside.

Dypsis decaryi (Triangle Palm)
We've recently introduced a smaller grade of Triangle palm, triple planted for indoors. These are a close relative of the Golden Cane palm but are grey/blue with a reddish crownshaft.

Dypsis lutescens (Golden Cane Palm)
In addition to our giant, old Golden Cane palms we've introduced a more sensible sized indoor range. Being a clustering palm this may be cut back as required to encourage new growth and maintain a reasonable height.

Euterpe edulis (Jucara Palm)
Back again and with a range of new sizes. More will become available as they settle into their new planter bags.

Livistona chinensis (Chinese Fan Palm)
We've now introduced a smaller grade of this lovely palm, suitable for indoors or out.

Livistona decipiens (Ribbon Fan Palm)
Another tough palm for dry locations now available as a smaller grade. Limited quantities with more available this coming summer.
