Arecas are clustering palms…meaning a multitude of trunks spring up from the base of the plant, giving it a lush full look.  Trunks on the same plant can vary in size from pencil thin to thick as a person’s arm, especially as the areca matures.  The soft, fine-textured fronds of a “Butterfly Palm” – as it’s sometimes called – are full and dense.  This makes it a favorite for privacy, accents and garden backdrops in many South and Central Florida home landscapes.

You can leave the palm fluffy and full to the ground, or thin it out to see more of the trunks.  Either way, this palm makes a great addition to most landscaping as long as it’s well placed for its ultimate size.
