About Red Neck Palm

It has a single, clean, white, waxy trunk ringed by the scars from the fallen fronds. The crown-shaft is covered in dense reddish-brown velvet like or fur-like fuzzy material tomentum, hence the name Teddy Bear Palm. The trunk has a lot of similarities with bamboo.

 

This is one of the more elegant and colorful Dypsis, and is now widespread in cultivation. With it's large stature and fuzzy bright red crownshaft, it stands out in any setting. In the past Dypsis lastelliana, the "Redneck Palm, " was often confused with Dypsis lepthocheilos, the "Teddy Bear Palm." This confusion was engrained and still persists somewhat today.

 

 

Scientific name Dypsis leptocheilos or Neodypsis lastelliana, is a very elegant palm known for its unique trunk with a distinctive reddish-colored fuzzy crown-shaft.
