Archontophoenix

Archontophoenix

Archontophoenix is a relatively small genus of six species, and all are native to NSW and Queensland. A. cunninghamiana& A. alexandrae are the most common species in cultivation. Archontophoenix naturally occur in coastal lowlands and rainforest areas from sea level up to 1000 m, and they have adapted well to many other climates. Generally speaking they require protection from the extreme weather, although able to survive mild frosts, the fronds will burn in severe frost affecting vigour. Archontophoenix are a very beautiful slender palm and if grown in a well-protected area will develop very large lush green feather shaped fronds. These palms have a cluster of white flowers followed by a mass of bright red seeds. Archontophoenix are reasonably vigorous growing to about 20 - 25m depending on the species. Archontophoenix transplant fairly well but prefer to be handled in the warmer months. The leaves of the Archontophoenix are one of few palms that are not armed with thorns or spikes, and for that reason it makes them very popular for domestic gardens, resorts and parks.
