Black Trunked Giant Fishtail Caryota Gigas / Palms

A stunning and huge growing fishtail with leaflets like a maidenhair fern.

Native to Thailand, this is an exceptional fishtail which is becoming quite popular.
Very fast grower and most suited to a sheltered site.
The fishtails do like a good, regular supply of water through dry periods (summer).
This palm tree is an absolute ‘must have’ should you have the space and shelter, as this turns into a huge tree.
Many of my customers remark that the leaves on these remind them of a gingko tree.
