The Piper Palm House was created to house exotic varieties of tropical plants, including palms.  The Park Director, John Karel has carefully planned and executed every step to preserve this landmark for the future generations. The Piper Palm House is a non-for-profit organization, which accepts donations for continual care and new initiatives. Solitaires are produced in the thousands by nurseries in the south as indoor or patio palms. This spectacular palm was only discovered in the late 1970’s and because of demand for seeds and it being endemic to only a very small area there developed a flourishing black market in its seed for several years. A very attractive, medium sized, slender, solitary palm with a neat crown of arching bright green leaves.
Lord Howe Island where it is widely distributed over the island, from low on the coastline, up onto the mountains. A very graceful, solitary, medium sized palm, with a dark green ringed trunk, to about 10m tall. Probably the most commonly grown indoor palm through out the world, and with good reason, being incredibly tolerant of neglect, and capable of withstanding very low light situations, as well as air-conditioning. A very attractive, small, single stemmed palm, to about 2m tall, with light green wide, pinnate leaves. A unique species that is known for the bulge at the base of the trunk.  Then, miraculously, this bulge shrinks as the palm matures, eventually giving a somewhat thin-trunked palm.
This is a clustering palm, which can form a clump up to 8 meters (24 feet) high and 4 meters (12 feet) across at the top.
Quite a popular plant due to its hardiness, attractiveness and small size (good for small areas). Interestingly enough, all the cultivated plants are single trunked, yet in the wild, they are all clumping, and single trunked specimens haven’t been found. A clustering palm, with up to about a dozen golden colored trunks, but no main trunk as the Ptychosperma have. One of the most popular palms in the tropics and sub-tropics, due to its ease of growth, and attractiveness.
Is becoming a very popular palm in Queensland, but few people are aware of just how large this palm can get, and one often sees it planted in places where its going to cause real problems later on.
A very attractive, single trunk Licuala, to about 2.5m, with glossy, dark green, entire leaves. The flowers can reach a size of 10-12 inches, but plants need to be a few years old before they will flower. This very symmetrical plant supports a crown of shiny, dark green leaves on a thick shaggy trunk that is typically about 20 cm (8 in.) in diameter, sometimes wider. The Chinese fan palm may reach 50 ft (15 m) tall, but is generally smaller, with a more modest size of 20-30 ft. Native to the tropical swamps and rainforests of southeastern Asia from Banglasdesh east to the Phipippines and north to southern China. Boston fern is a shade-tolerant plant that grows best in moist soils and warm, humid conditions. The leaves, called fronds, arise in clusters from the base and have an elliptical outline, with many, alternately arranged, shallow-toothed leaflets, or stripes.
Boston fern is common in tropical hammocks and areas with lots of light and moisture, where the plants may form thick blankets on the forest floor. Native to Asia, from the Himalaya east through southern China (Guizhou, Sichuan, Yunnan) and to Taiwan and to southern Japan. Commonly seen as an ornamental plant in gardens in Asia, Europe, North America, and elsewhere in the world, for its deliciously fragrant flowers which carry the scent of ripe peaches or apricots.
It prefers sunny spots, covering the tops and flanks of large granite boulders, for example in the higher reaches of ferny creeks in the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
In 2008 David Knoll the foremost tropical plant and palm expert was contacted to design an original and unique look. It carries a small head of semi-erect leaves, each pinnae notched in the typical Ptychosperma fashion, and produces bright red fruits. Given a shady spot, they grow slim and elegant, holding a crown of dark green leaves above a green crown shaft. Even today, the Queensland Government still has the palm on its endangered species list, even though there are now tens of thousands of the palms growing throughout the world, many of which are now fruiting. An excellent, fast growing garden plant but one which unfortunately is very cold sensitive, and so it is only really suited to the tropics. It has a very attractive crown of light green, broad ruffled, spiny leaflets, (similar to Caryota, hence the old name), on pale spiny stalks. The leaves are held upright, (like a shuttlecock) and have a very interesting and unusual metallic sheen. Rhapis Excelsa is very adaptable to soil types although neutral to slightly acid soils with good drainage and organic matter is recommended for best results. It has beautifully drooping, dark green leaflets, and a brown hessian like thatch around the leaf bases.
Its usually seen in clumps, since it looks more attractive this way, however this is just due to multiple seeds being sown together.
Grows to a height of 20 feet, Single trunk, when young has a prominent bulge at the base of the trunk.
Likes moist soil, and can stand full sun in the tropics (high humidity), though requires shade in the sub-tropics. The trunk is very low to subterranean in young plants, but lengthens above ground with age. The leaves are alternate on the stems, lanceolate to narrowly ovate, dark to medium green, 10-45 cm long and 4-16 cm broad, depending on the species.
It can often be seen growing on the trunks of cabbage palms, or other trees across Florida.
Hookerii, which is not a true species, but it does appear to be a useful sub-classification name since the plants are of a uniform coloring. It scrambles thickly over the sides of the boulders with the rhizomes sometimes hanging down to the creek. This palm as is the case with most Rhapis species is an under storey plant so for best results a partially shaded spot under trees or a pergola is ideal. Each trunk produces flowers for several seasons, starting from the top of the trunk and moving downwards, but then dies after its final seeding. It is a very useful and attractive plant for the gardener, its leaf color and shape making it quite distinctive. Not self-cleaning, so old fronds need to be manually removed (it can get be painful, due to the spines). It can grow into very old specimens with 6–7 m (over 20 feet) of trunk; however, the plant is very slow-growing and requires about 50–100 years to achieve this height. The flowers are relatively inconspicuous, white or greenish-white spaths that can give way to red berries.
While it prefers well-drained soil, it can also grow as an air plant, attaching itself to cabbage palms and other trees. The vegetative growth has the ability to filter pollutants out of the air and is sometimes planted to help purify and humidify an environment. The flowers are white, pale yellow, yellow, or orange-yellow, small (1 cm long), with a four-lobed corolla 5 mm diameter, and have a strong fragrance; they are produced in small clusters in the late summer and autumn.
Rhapis Excelsa can be grown in full sun as long as soils are good and adequate water is available.
The leaves are light green, bipinnate, and triangular, closely resembling a fish’s tail in shape.
The reddish-brown to brown stems shoot out in different directions from the base of the plant and are often covered with slight fuzz. Not used very much in public plantings, but popular locally (Northern Territory) as a tub palm. Leaves however will lose their deep green coloring, will become yellowish green and on the hotter days will probably burn. The leaves don’t absciss when spent, but they are easily removed due to the palms size. Becoming very popular with landscapers because the leaves aren’t as big and hard to deal with as the widely used Archontophoenix Alexandrae.
