Lady Palm (Rhapis Excelsa)

Lady palms are widely used as garden accents or as container plants, performing well in a variety of settings and climates. With a maximum height of 10', this easy-to-care-for palm adds a dose of tropical charm to any garden.

Lady palms grow at a rate of approximately 12" per year, and send up new shoots throughout their growth cycle. They are cold hardy to 20 degrees, and thrive in humidity. They also work especially well as indoor plants, though bringing them inside will slow their growth rate.
