Gaussia maya is a fast growing palm tree from central Americas that needs a consistently warm climate and plenty of access to water.

They are very attractive ornamental palms that can take a fair amount of sun but also go very well in more shady parts of your garden.

They are fairly sparsely crowned made up of around 6-8 leaves that can be up to 2.5 metres long and the leaflets are arranged in multiple planes making for a somewhat plume-like appearance.

It can produce multiple inflorescences of flowers at any one time and the resulting fruits are red.

They can take a light frost but not for prolonged periods
