Red Latan Palm
Latania is a genus of 3 species, native to the Mascarene Islands. They have
stiff fan shaped leaves, giving them a unique appearance, and they make excellent
pot plants when young. They are easy and satisfying to grow, not fussy and will flourish in a wide range of frost-free,
warmer climates. The tree species are easily distinguishable especially when young by the colour of the leafstalks
for which they are named. Latania lontaroides has spectacular reddish leaves and red leafstalks when young.
