Rhapidophyllum hystrix 'Georgia' - Georgia Needle Palm - 3pcs seeds/packet
Considered to be the most cold hardy of all palms, withstanding temperatures down to -23°C (-10°F), Rhapidophyllum has gained a lot of popularity in cultivation in recent years. A well-grown specimen, with its deeply divided, dark green, glossy leaves, is a handsome palm, and well worth the trouble of obtaining or growing, despite the armament of its short, fibrous trunk. The Needle Palm is found in the undergrowth of mostly deciduous woodlands and hammocks from central Florida to Mississippi and South Carolina, where it generally prefers wetter sites, at the bottom of ravines or along small streams.
These seeds were collected in Georgia at the northern limit of the palms range.
