'Hawaiian Palm'

Brighamia insignis

Endemic to Hawaii, where it is endangered and possibly extinct in the wild, this unusual palm makes an excellent houseplant and has therefore been heavily cultivated, saving the species from being wiped out all together.

Sometimes referred to as 'Cabbage on a Stick', the Brighamia has a succulent trunk and thick cabbage like foliage. Fragrant yellow flowers can bloom in September through to November and in the wild this plant has been reported to reach 5 metres in height!


12cm pot x 35cm height

Why Hutch selects me

One of the first plants we stocked when opening the shop back in 2017; we've always had a soft spot for these unusual and at risk palms.

How to look after me

Watering: When the soil has dried; approximately once every 7-10 days

Light: Bright indirect

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next.
