Palms & Architectural Exotic Plants for Sale

The Best Palms & Exotic Plants

Perfect for Specimens & Architectural Statements


Whether planted as specimens, along avenues, or as a thicket, these hardy palms, exotic architectural plants, and vigorous bamboos bring themes of warmer places and beaches beyond Northern European shores. 

Architectural plants are all about adding year round interest and often height for framing borders, and being focal points. They can be used in many styles, but the purpose is invariably to bring "drama in 3D horti-colour". A lot of them are very low maintenance, and suit urban gardens alongside gravel, stones or paving.
