A Belated Happy New Year to you all!
Last year was a busy year for me in many ways. I am pleased to announce that I have finished my book "The Palms of Cuba" and it is at the printer as we speak. I should have copies available for sale by mid-March. This is a comprehensive book of the 98 taxa of native Cuban palms featuring descriptions, uses, conservation status, distribution maps, cultivation information and much more. It has 232 pages with over 420 photos. If you are interested in Cuban palms, this book should be the one for you. More information about "The Palms of Cuba" will be posted in the coming month.

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
