Lipsticks

Th Lipsticks‘The Lipsticks’ is a nick name give by the Cairns people to this stunning ‘Sealing Wax Palm’ which can only survive in a Tropical  climate.  It is a slow growing clumping palm which makes a bright statement in our gardens and when grown in a row can make an attractive fence as shown in my painting.  The red stalks glow after the rain or when the sun is going down.  Some locals believe they bring good luck when planted by the entrance of your home.
