Cat palm is smaller than other palms and is ideal for small spaces such as apartments; it grows just 3 to 6 feet tall. Native to southern Mexico and Central America, Cat palms make lush additions on outdoor patios as well. Cat palms do best in bright light and moist (but not wet!) soil. Botanic name: Chamaedorea cataractarum Care tip: Cat palms don’t like dry soil, so make sure they are well hydrated.
A spectacular source of dark, intense color and narrow, vertical form, 'East Friesland' is a wonder in the front of the border, and combines well with Shasta Daisies. The flowers attract butterflies, and are superb for cutting.
