Caryota ochlandra

ARECACEAE

 

Caryota ochlandra is native to China and Thailand, and commonly called the 'Chinese Fishtail Palm' . A hardy tree once established, will grow to 30ft, narrow, blunt ended, jagged leaflets.

The great attraction of all Caryota palm trees is that they grow well in cooler climates and can help add a more tropical feel to a garden. They do require a protected position, however Caryota ochlandra is the hardiest of them all, it makes a good shade tree as well.
