    Chamaedorea metallica  "Metallic Palm" is a small growing palm native to the dark rainforests of Central America where you will find growing under the cover of already mature plants.

    The Metallic Palm has a most unusual frond formation and colouration that makes it a very unique palm indeed. Growing up to 2 meters in height with deep dark green fronds that under the right conditions, the deep green frond takes on a silver metallic sheen, hence the name.  Great as an indoor specimen for those low light positions.  Can be community potted for good effect indoors.

    Definitely a shade-loving species, particularly useful in your subtropical garden planted under larger sun absorbing palms making the Metallic Palm a great under-storey Palm.  Easy care, cold tolerant down to -1C for brief periods once established, but not frost tolerant.
