Properties and uses:
The Bismarck palm is a magnificent palm tree, it has palmate feather like leaves that are purple when young becoming grey blue as the tree matures. Its trunk is smooth and quite wide.
It grows slowly and this makes it a good candidate for a pot plant where it should be kept inside in a light position or in a veranda. Remember to put it outside when the temperatures warm up so that it can profit from the summer Its root system is quite sensitive so avoid repotting it too often.
In regions with mild winters, it can be grown in the ground as long as it is well protected over winter.
