Areca vestiaria

Common Name Sunset Palm
Type of Plant Palm

Widely variable in terms of coloration, this palm grows most often with a scarlet or maroon crown shaft and maroon emergent leaves. Though some leaves emerge green and stay green, a maroon emergent plant will maintain its color for a very long time- often until a new leaf begins to grow.

Requirements An understory plant in habitat, A. vestiaria requires partial shade and high humidity. As with most tropical plants, evenly moist and well drained soils are preferred, though soil quality can be compromised if drainage is good. This palm belongs to Cold Hardiness Zone 10a.
