This symbolic NZ native 'Ponga' produces bright green, shiny fronds with beautiful silver undersides. The trunk is patterned with the bases of the fallen fronds. Prefers shade to semi-shade, protection from the wind and good drainage.

Plant Care: 

Require a moist but well drained soil with plenty of organic matter. Water regularly to maintain plant health during hot periods. Add a mulch of organic matter in autumn, prune off any dead growth as required.
