The main requirement for growing the Needle Palm is patience! Slow, even in its hot native swamps, in cool UK conditions it takes time to gain momentum but your reward is an exceptionally hardy and attractive palm, perhaps the hardiest palm in the world. With a suckering habit, Rhapidophyllum hystrix eventually forms a neat dome of glossy deep green fan-shaped leaves, individual enough to merit space in the garden, that remains fresh after the harshest of winters. Ample water, even marshy ground, full sun and shelter from wind will keep this palm looking in tip-top condition as it slowly adds size.
