Figure 1. P. gracilis




Common Names:

Himalayan Pinanga


Indian Himalayas


Moist rainforest


An attractive, small, slender, clumping palm to about 5m tall, with dark green, pinnate leaves to about 1m long. It has clusters of orange/scarlet fruit.



Coming from the Himalayas, this is much more cold tolerant than most Pinangas, but probably still not frost tolerant. It likes a sheltered and moist but well drained position. It is a very nice palm which should be more widely grown.
