If you fancy adding something exotic to your home or garden, you can’t beat a palm tree. At Homebase you’ll find a range of palms in different styles and sizes, including the UK’s most popular palm – the Phoenix Canariensis or Canary Island Date Palm. Native to Japan, the Cycas Revolta or Sago Palm is slow growing and suitable for indoors or outdoors, while our large Trachycarpus palms offer market-leading value and are suitable for growing in all parts of the UK. Look out for our new Yucca Jewel palms with their stunning variegated leaves and our Areca and Kentia palms in the houseplant area at your local store.
