La Palmeraie is also active on Twitter. You can find a direct link in the navigation menu on the right side of the website. This way you keep informed, see nice pictures or “nice to know” information. Like this alphabet.

The idea was to tweet a new letter with a specific palm-nice-to-know fact every new day…. at least to try so. Not always that easy but here you will find them all.


Areca, or golden cane palm, one of the most popular isn’t an Areca but a Dypsis! #palmalphabet


Bismarckia nobilis ‘Silver’; the stunning grey leaves turn red when he is kept at temperatures too low. #palmalphabet


Chamaedorea microspadix is a pinnate palm that is worth a try in the garden. With some winter protection of course. #palmalphabet


Date palm or Phoenix dactylifera; nice and easy to try for yourself. Just eat a date and sow the seed afterwards.#palmalphabet


Elaeis guineensis or African oil palm. The principal source of palm oil.#palmalphabet

Everglades palm, or Accoelorraphe wrightii. A really nice species with seed that conserves really well. Growth rate is rather slow though. #palmalphabet


Freeze or not to freeze! Take a look at all our winter protection articles to be well prepared for the winter. #palmalphabet


Guihaia argyrata used to be seen as a Trachycarpus-species. With DNA research wo now know it isn’t! #palmalphabet


Howea forsteriana or Kentia; one of the most famous. Did you knew that every single stem becomes a full adult palm tree? #palmalphabet


If you see some transparent and sticky liquid on the leaves you might have scale insects on the palm! #palmalphabet


January and february are most ideal for sowing some new palm species. The seed trays can benefit from the heat of your heating system indoors. #palmalphabet

Rhapidophyllum hystrix is extremely hardy. But very slow to grow as well. #palmalphabet


Syargus romanzoffiana is called ‘Cocos plumosa’ in Spain. Quite confusing. #palmalphabet
