I found this beautiful palm on the grounds of the Shangri-La Hotel where we stayed in Singapore. I had never seen a palm with a red crownshaft, and was quite taken with it. I researched it and learned it is a rare and exotic Lipstick Palm Tree. Tricky to grow, the sealing wax palm needs high humidity, a lot of water and is not tolerant of drought or wind. It is considered a collectors palm and one of the most beautiful and sought-after palms in the world. Singapore’s monsoon and equatorial environment make it perfect for this pretty palm. I would be happy to wear this shade of red lipstick. Isn’t it a beautiful shade of red?
