The Arecaceae are a botanical family of shrubs and trees commonly known as palm trees. Most palms are distinguished by their large, compound, evergreen leaves arranged at the top of an unbranched stem.
Most palms grow in the tropics and subtropics and can be planted in all soils, preferably a dry atmosphere, abundant water for irrigation, sunny and warm climates. Suitable for coastal areas (gardens, hotels, parks, etc.) singled planting or tree lined.
Because of their impressive size it can occupy a central position in the garden because unlike other plants it gives vertical emphasis on the landscape, creating height differences or highlighting specific points. They can be easily combined with all Mediterranean species.
