Areca macrocalyx ‘Red’ Palm Tree


The Areca macrocalyx is found in and around New Guinea including the Maluku and Solomon Island rainforests in the Melanesia region. 


Often referred to as a ‘dwarf’ the Areca macrocalyx palm often grows up to 12 feet but has been known to also reach heights of 20 or higher in cultivation. It's a fast-growing, solitary palm with a large crown of glossy, deep-green, broad pinnate leaves that emerge from a spectacular red crown shaft and handsome bamboo-like ringed trunk. The mature seeds are also an ornamental red.

Areca macrocalyx red is a tropical palm that tolerates many different types of soils and thrives in partial or filtered sunlight but does not tolerate temperatures approaching freezing.

To the home-grown medicine enthusiasts, on top of being a gorgeous palm, the seeds of A. macrocalyx are often substituted for Betel Nut. 


This red crown shaft variety of Areca macrocalyx is a rare find for palm enthusiasts. It provides a dramatic show of color that will knock your socks off. If you aren’t a palm collector / addict, this gorgeous blushing red palm will surely make you fall in love and start you on your journey to becoming one.
