  Eden palms
by freya_heaven

A tropical beach in the south seas maybe, NO its the Palms area! (~_~)

The various different palms have a huge range of uses by humans, not just dates & coconuts etc. More importantly we get products such a rope, Palm oil, which is used in hair & cleaning products, processed foods, cooking oil. Plus for the local people the stems & leaves provide, shelter, roofs, floor coverings. The trunks can be made in to boats & give support to buildings.

A very adaptable plant!
