Just back from Cuba!
I have been able to get some questions answered about some of the palm species in Cuba on this trip as well as get some more photos. It will definitely help with the book I am writing, which is coming along quite well. We also survived Hurricane Mathew basically unscathed even though the eye wall came within 20 or so miles from us. We did not even lose power although some people around us were out of power for up to a week. I have many photos and other information to upload to the website but really concentrating on book writing at the moment. I should be doing some updating before long so 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
