This is a very exotic and rare palm tree. Its beautiful red trunk is a stunning landscape feature and makes the palm highly sought after. Additionally, the palm naturally grows in clusters of multiple stems similar to bamboo palms, so the red color creates a painterly, brushstroke-like effect in the landscape. Combined with the handsome feathery foliage, the entire effect is truly beautiful and artistic.
Lipstick palm, sadly, is not easy to grow. Although it grows well in both full sun or part shade, this palm needs year-round high humidity, well-drained soil, and is not tolerant of drought or wind. It is also extremely cold sensitive, even in South Florida: any temperatures below 55 F will damage or kill the plant. For this reason it is advisable to only grow this palm in a container that can be moved into a heated, humidified room during any periods of cold weather.
