Adonidia

Wikipedia Abstract

Adonidia is a genus of flowering plants in the Arecaceae family. At present (April 2014) there are two recognized species. The first and better known is the Manila Palm (Adonidia merrillii). It is native to Palawan, Danjugan Island and Sabah, and reportedly naturalized in the West Indies. It is commonly known as the "Christmas Palm" because its fruits become bright scarlet and tend to be that color in winter. This palm is typically fairly small and slender, normally attaining 15–25 feet in height but has attained 36 feet grown in greenhouse conditions.
