Enjoying Palm Nut Heaven in Hawaii!
It has been a couple years since we have been to Hawaii and it is always amazing to see how much the palms have grown in that amount of time. There are also always new species in gardens that I have not photographed before so needless to say I am taking lots of photos and will be adding them to the website over the next couple of months. You may notice that it is easier to do searches now. When you start typing a genus name, a list of possibilities come up to choose from so you can click on the one you want and then click search to get a list of the species in that genus. There is no need to know the exact spelling any more. We have just about cleared out all the inventory in our online store. Over the coming months we will start adding new inventory with a different focus. As always other additions and changes will be happening to the website so be sure and check back often to see what is new!

Welcome to THE website dedicated to anything and everything about palms.

Here you will find information about every species of palm ever named.  Under the tab ‘About Palms’ there is information about what a palm is and their classification.  As time goes on, taxonomic information, cultural and horticultural information, and landscape requirements will be added for each species.  Some of the articles that will be added include growing and caring for palms, palm propagation, proper palm nutrition, disease and pest problems of palms, and container palms for indoors.

Besides being an informational site, we offer books, clothing, and other handmade and palm inspired products from around the world through our online store.

Links to other sources of information about palms are also provided such as palm societies, institutions, and public botanical gardens. This site is constantly updated as more information and photos become available.  Just keeping up with taxonomic name changes is at times a challenge as well as new species being discovered on a semi-regular basis.

Take some time and explore these pages as there is much to see. Sign up for our Newsletter to find out about additions we have recently made to the website and for information about new developments happening in the world of palms.


Have a great palmy day
