Bottle Palm

Hyophorbe Lagenicaulis

Bottle Palm

It is originally from Round Island, a miniscule island in the Indian Ocean, and part of the Mascarene Island group. Their stumpy fat-bellied trunks present a very human scale that is likely at home in a smaller landscape setting that can offer a most unique sculpture in the selected space. This almost dwarf palm can grow with time to a height of 10-12 ft. The trunk is a rounded bulge in young specimens and gradually elongates and flattens somewhat as the palm matures. The upwardly arching feather leaves grow to about 10 ft in length in mature palms. They grow upward as they mature supporting numerous male and female small white flowers on the same stalk. This palm is ideal to plant under groupings of larger plant species as it accepts very well partial sun condition.

USDA Zones 10-11. This is a tender palm and although can be damaged by frost conditions, we have seen it do quite well in our south Florida winters.

Striking appearance
Bottle palms are known for their unique and eye-catching appearance, featuring a stout trunk and a distinctive swollen base that resembles a bottle, making them a visually appealing addition to landscapes and gardens.
Low maintenance
These palms are relatively low-maintenance once established, requiring minimal pruning and care. In suitable climates, they can thrive with moderate watering and occasional fertilization.
Versatile container plant
Bottle palms make excellent container plants for areas outside their native range. When properly protected from cold temperatures and not overwatered, they can flourish as attractive ornamental features on patios, decks, or indoors.
