    Caryota urens 
    Fishtail palm


    A beautiful palm with the unique quality of having leaves that resemble a fishes tail. The slender, single trunk and feathery leaves make them wonderful planter palms for the deck during the warmer months. THe tree flowers only once in its lifetime and can last several years. Each individual flower may remain open for about 6 weeks.

    Hardy to about 24 degrees without much leaf damage. Plants like a lot of water and fertilizer during the hot months and if you give the palms a little extra nitrogen during the growing season it will keep them looking their best. If planting them out, choose a site that is well protected, either next to a wall, building or house south side preferred or under a large tree. 

    Urens is Latin for stinging which refers to the iritants contained in the fruits which may effect the skin. 

    Caryota species are the only palms with bipinnate leaves or leaves that are divided into leaflets resulting in the fishtail appearance
