"Beatrice" form

Wonderful and fast-growing Australian conservatory palm, its elegant, feather-shaped leaves are green
above and silvery-white below. It needs bright light, rich and moist soil, and plenty of water. It can also be
used outdoors on the terrace during the warmer months but will only tolerate a few degrees of frost.
Makes an excellent house plant if the light is bright.
