The Cane Palm of Japan is an elegant dwarf-growing palm with cane-like stems and crowns of palmate leaves, admirable for pot culture and for places in rooms or verandas. If planted out of doors it should be given a shaded sheltered situation free from draughts or cold winds. There are several species and varieties of this most interesting palm all worthy of a place in any collection.

Propagation is effected by division of the roots in early Spring.
