Palms and palm trees belong to the Arecaceae family, which is also known as Palmae. While some palms are hardy, most species are native to warm regions such as the tropics and subtropics. Our range includes the Areca, Kentia, Chamaedorea and Veitchia.
Palms can often be recognized by their pinnate leaves and characteristic stem or trunk. The trunk is made up of many leaf stalks, and it forms as the old leaves die and drop off.
