About Phoenix Roebelenii
Leaves that give 'movement' to a bouquet
Phoenix roebelenii, originally native to south-eastern Asia, is a popular ornamental plant growing in tropical and subtropical climate areas. It is a small to medium-sized, slow-growing slender tree growing to 2–3 meters. The leaves are 60 to 120 cm long with around 100 leaflets arranged in a single plane. The cut leaves are widely used in bouquets and floral arrangements and the plant is also often to see in homes and gardens.
First as young plants, they grow in a tunnel box (mesh box) to then be replanted outside in the open fields. After harvesting, the roebelenii leaves are set in water to rehydrate, then washed, sorted out, cut, bunched in sleeves and finally packed in boxes.
It is nice when there is 'movement' in a bouquet, for example a vine of ivy falling down in a bouquet or use roebelenii. Phoenix roebelenii moves at the moment when you give away the bouquet. How beautiful is that!
