Olmsted x Parlor Palm

Frederick Law Olmsted is largely regarded as the father of American landscape architecture. Together with his mentor Calvert Vaux, Olmsted co-designed many of the public green spaces we enjoy today. This design in his honor was one of our very first planter silhouettes. The straight lines and tall shape of the ceramic pot compliment the leafy green leaves of the Parlor Palm.

Plant Bio

Chamaedorea elegans, also known as the Neanthe Bella Parlor Palm, is one of our favorite true palms. With the right care and many, many repottings, the Parlor Palm can grow to well over six feet tall. But do not repot more than once a year, as their roots like to relax. Although in the same family as coconuts and dates, which produce edible fruit from flowers at the top of the plant, this plant produces inedible fruit from flowers at the base of the plant. It most likely will not flower indoors, but it will bring a tropical feel to any space. Cultivated since the Victorian era, this species of palm is prized for its resilience to indoor conditions and reliable habit.
