    The slow growing Caranday, or Wax Palm, is an often overlooked member of the Copernicia family that can make a high impact both indoors and outdoors. The Wax Palm gets its name from the wax its leaves produce, which is commonly used in the cosmetics and automotive industries. The Caranday Wax Palm has a tough, grey, cylindrical trunk that retains the spiky bases of old leaves for several years when the palm is young. These tough spines fall off as the palm matures, revealing a smooth bark. The foliage grows directly from the top of the trunk, forming a cascading fountain shape over time. These fronds are fan shaped, vary in shade from silver to light green or light blue, and can have sharp edges. The Caranday Wax Palm flowers in the fall, with miniscule white flowers. These flowers produce round, yellow fruits that blacken as they ripen. These are edible, but are known to have a strong bitter taste after an initial sweetness. This palm is gaining popularity due to its exceptional cold tolerance (withstanding temperatures of 25-30 degrees Fahrenheit), relative ease of maintenance, and resistance to pest and disease. Use it as a standalone focal point or in groupings of 2-3 for a standout specimen.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
