DYPSIS

Madagascar natives better known by the alternative botanical names Neodypsis and Chrysalidocarpus. Both of these tropical species are rather tender, small to medium-size feather palms with graceful foliage and attractive trunks. Good container plants for patio, lanai. Give indoor plants bright filtered light.

Dypsis lutescens

Madagascar. This clumping palm has slender yellowish trunks, yellow-green leaves, and clusters of golden yellow fruit. Slow growth to 28 ft. tall, 20 ft. wide; unlikely to reach that size in California, but possibly Florida. Protect from hot, dry wind. Drought tolerant but does best with regular water. Moderate salt tolerance.
