Adonidia merrillii is a small palm with a very elegant port, adapting to the most difficult conditions such as drought or soil poor in organic matter.
Ideal in a tropical, subtropical garden, greenhouse or veranda, it will produce clusters of bright red or green fruit in December, which has earned it the name Christmas Palm.
Easy to grow, it grows quickly.
