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. http://www.costafarms.com/Public/PlantLibraryView.aspx?Id=47
