Lipstick palms, a brilliant addition to a tropical north Queensland garden.
The Lipstick palm (Cyrtostachys renda), also known as red palm or red sealing wax palm, gets its name from its brilliant red fronds and stem. Many people believe the lipstick palm to be one of the most beautiful and unusual palms on the planet.
It’s better to keep your lipstick palm in the shade or in filtered sunlight until it’s a little older. After that, it can withstand both partial shade and full sun. This plant can be grown outside in USDA hardiness zones 11-12, however it is extremely cold intolerant and will die if exposed to frost.
