Adonidia merrillii (variegated)

palm DATa

Habitat: A variegated form of the classic “Manila Palm” from the Philippines / Malaysia

Notes: Buying live plants of variegated forms takes away the headache of culling the green form and picking the best seedlings, unlike most variegated plants, this form comes 90% true to seed. Needs a good mixture of sun and shade to look its best.

Cold Hardiness: Requires Tropical Setting or Greenhouse


This palm is safe in situ and within cultivation. This plant has been propagated worldwide for decades and is one of the most common plants you will see in a landscape setting – the variegated form is more rare and sought after by collectors.
