Lady Palm Overview

Rhapis is a genus of around 11 evergreen palm trees in the Coryphoideae subfamily of the palm family, Arecaceae. These plants are native to Southeastern Asia. Members of this genus are commonly known as Lady Palms, and several are cultivated as ornamental plants for their clumps of bamboo-like slender stems and divided fan-shaped leaves with panicles of usually yellow flowers. They are also used to remove toxins from the air.
