Details & Care
The Veitchia (Adonidia) merrillii, better known as the Christmas Palm, has its origin in the Philippines. It was first scientifically described in 1898 by American botanist Elmer Drew Merrill. The palm mainly grows in tropical rainforests, but due to its beauty, it has gained worldwide popularity as an ornamental plant for both indoor and outdoor use.

The Veitchia merrillii is a small to medium-sized palm species that can grow up to 6 metres high. The slender trunk is crowned by an elegant fan of feathery, finely divided leaves. A distinctive feature is the bright red fruits that the tree produces around the Christmas period, hence the nickname 'Christmas Palm'. Each year, the palm develops new clusters of flowers that produce an abundant amount of small, creamy white flowers.

In its natural habitat, the Veitchia merrillii grows in well-drained, moist soils and in a warm, sunny climate. To grow this plant in cooler climates, it is essential to keep it indoors in a pot or container and give it plenty of light. Watering should be regular and plentiful, but avoid saturation. The plant requires a high humidity level and so we recommend regularly spraying the leaves and stem. Good care also includes pruning discoloured or dead leaves to promote healthy growth.
