Areca catechu

Areca catechu - Betel Nut

Often used as a feature/ornamental palm tree, as it matures it forms a stunning green stem with white rings. Create that tropical vibe, with lush green feather shaped foliage. Slow grower, can reach 4-5m tall after approx 10-15 years. It loves the warm weather, prefers some shade.

Position: Full sun to part shade 

Grows to Height: 20m in the garden

Note: It's not all about the height. When opting for a larger plant, you are selecting a plant that is overall more advanced and mature than the smaller size. The root ball is more established therefore supporting quicker growth.

The supplied height above is a guide. We strive hard to supply the best value plants and will generally, where possible, supply above the standard supplied heights. Occasionally due to seasonal variation and demand will need to supply standard height plants.
