The Champagne Cork Palm (Hyophorbe Vershaffeltii)

Champagne_cork_palm Also known as the 'Spindle Palm,' this great looking specimen is a medium sized palm tree which makes an excellent accent tree on any home or commercial garden landscape.

Over time the palm forms a thick grey trunk which swells in the middle, forming it's interesting profile, and one that gives it's memorable nickname.

The leaves are 9 to 10ft long and consist of 100-150 bright leaflets, creating a nice blend of green and grey colour that add to the palm's attractiveness.

The Champagne Cork Palm prefers warm, seaside locations for optimum growth, although you often see them at inland locations throughout Thailand.
