Versatile Majesty Palms We love to use inexpensive Majesty palms everywhere -- in rooms that need a little life and on patios and porches. It makes a gorgeous “thriller” plant in a big outdoor container -- with showy Tropic Escape mandevilla and hibiscus surrounding its base. Botanic name: Ravenea rivularis Care tip: Majesty palms like moist soil, but don’t allow them to dry out or sit in water.
Sometimes a large planter that is dramatic is all you need. This planter, coupled with the bedding plants behind, gives a dramatic focal point at the end of a pool that can be seen from all angles. Bright mixes of color cascade from the base while the tropical palm adds drama and height.
