Lipstick Palm (Cyrtostachys renda)
The Lipstick palm is a stunning feather palm with a brilliantly, almost unbelievably vivid red trunk & crown shaft, found in lowland coastal swamps in SE Asia. It’s a medium sized, to about 6m, clumping palm. One of the most spectacular and colourful tropical palms and extremely popular as garden and landscaping plant.
Cyrtotachys renda is very cold sensitive and should not be grown in the garden outside the tropics.
In the tropics it’s very easy to grow, provided it gets lots of water and sun/overhead light. Soil should be rich, moist and loamy, and plants should be fed monthly with a tropical plant or palm fertilizer.
Definitely worth the effort if you live in the tropics or have a heated conservatory that can maintain constant temperatures over 15C.
A must for every palm lover/collector.
These palms are only available for shipping until 30th April so be in quick.
We offer no guarantee to anyone growing these palms outside of the tropics! (anywhere south of coastal Mackay in Queensland).
