A traveller’s palm provides vertical drama in this tight space, bookended by the octopus-like forms of Myers asparagus ferns. Greg transformed the bare [Colorbond](http://www.colorbond.com/|target="_blank") fence on a tight budget by creating a decorative framework panel from simple garden stakes. Bamboo screening panels were framed with lengths of recycled timber. Photo: Scott Hawkins
A premium plant! Kentia Palm is an elegant plant that eagerly thrives indoors yet grows relatively slowly so it can be enjoyed for many years. You’ll regard this palm as a stylish addition to your room, adding lush color and graceful fronds. Botanic name: Howea fosteriana Care tip: Kentia palms are colder tolerant than some other palms, and can thrive in cold dips to 10 degrees F.
Versatile Majesty Palms 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.
