    Gaussia maya, known as the Maya Palm is a very attractive palm that is native to Central American rainforests. A solitary feather palm that grows to about 6 metres tall. Stems are grey, with very colourful seed bracts. The Maya Palm differs from most palm species in that it simultaneously produces flower stalks (inflorescences) up and down the trunk that ultimately bear attractive scarlet seed.

    The Maya Palm is great collectors palm for the warmer parts of NZ.  Being a Rainforest Palm they start its life off in the protection and shade of larger palms as it grows taller it slowly can take more and more sun. Not very frost tolerant but handles cold for brief periods down to -2C
