The Nikau Palm
The Nikau (Rhopalostylis sapida) palm is New Zealands only native palm. We have a constantly growing Nikau section, just click here to view.
Also inside this site you will find all manner of information regarding palms and cycads in New Zealand. We try to emphasise what palms can grow in the New Zealand climate, and what conditions they need to do so. Our Inventory is full of that information.
There's also plenty of foreign content, as well as a general Information section you may find very useful.
The Palm and Cycad Society of NZ (PACSONZ) was formed in 1983. Today it has members throughout the country, is affiliated to the International Palm Society, and is associated with many other related societies worldwide.
Meetings are held on a regular basis and members can hear guest speakers, share information, and exchange and sell plants. We also run a library, and manage special events in New Zealand and abroad throughout the year.
Check What's On for details of meetings, events, and other specials.
