Not a Tree, But a Feathery Clustering of Arching Airy Palm Fronds
The Cat Palm is sometimes called the Cataract or Cascade Palm, as it originates from the jungles of Central America where it grew along stream banks. A Cat can grow to 6 ft. in a visually pleasing rounded profile. Perfect near pools or ponds, this slow-growing tropical resembles an Areca, but it will not grow as large, and its leaf stems are green.
This plant prefers shade, making it a successful choice for indoors. Though it needs regular watering, be careful not to soak the roots. Outdoors, many gardeners group Cats as a privacy screen. If that’s your plan, make sure to plant them 3 ft. apart. An occasional trim keeps them looking their best.Categories: House Plants / Indoor / Interior, PalmsTags: Exterior, Interior
