Areca Palm often conjures up ideas of sun-soaked holidays and its symbolic strength does indeed come from its association as a solar symbol.
Golden Butterfly Palm: Although it looks like an evergreen palm plant, it grows yellow conical flowers during the summer. As a foliage-viewing plant, the leaves curve upwards in multiple stems creating a butterfly look. Hence, it is called a Golden Butterfly Palm.
In Feng Shui, the Areca palm is considered lucky. It brings wealth, peace, and prosperity to the house, pushing out negative energy, and attracting positivity.
Legend has it that Yellow Butterfly Palm leaves once grew very straight and dense. During a war, a general could not find a hiding place, but could only hide among Yellow Butterfly Palms. He prayed that it could help him. Unexpectedly, it opened its leaves around him to help him easily escape.
