Kentia Palm (Howea forsteriana)
The Kentia Palm, Howea forsteriana is an elegant species of palm tree that is prized for its eye-catching trunk and exquisitely beautiful palm fronds that grow a deep green color and arch from the crown outward to create a tropical canopy wherever it is planted. The deep brown trunk grows tall and narrow making this palm perfectly suited for tighter areas and to be planted in clusters. This will help add shade to your landscape as well as blocking out unwanted views.
The Kentia Palm is one of the most elegant palms we offer at Moon Valley Nursery and they are one of the most cultivated ornamental palm species in the world. These palms are commonly found in resorts and around pools. Moon Valley Nurseries has been custom growing our Kentia palms from seedlings and cuttings for over 20 years from only our highest quality specimens.

Maintenance and cleanup for the Kentia Palm is quite easy. They are one of the cleanest palms and pruning will only be necessary when removing old leaf bases on the trunk. The leaves are feather-like and grow downward for a graceful look. Moon Valley Nurseries has the largest inventory of Kentia Palms in all of Southern California.
