Project Description

Chrysalidocarpus lutescens, Dypsis lutescens  : Areca Palm

-Light Exposure: Sun or Shade
-Water Req: High
-Height: 15 – 20 ft.
-Growth Rate: Moderate

Areca Palms grow in clusters, meaning multiple trunks protrude from the base ultimately creating a lush, full appearance which is best used as a privacy screen or a back drop to other plantings. Areca Palms are wider at the top, so be sure to plant at least 4 feet away from the house and 3 – 6 feet away from each other when wanting to create a hedge.
