Popular fan palm for the garden or conservatory. In the garden, plant in full sun or partial shade. It can tolerate temperatures down to 10ºdegrees F or lower when larger. Younger or potted plants are less hardy and may need some protection on colder nights. Snow and wind resistant, it really is an excellent outdoor palm. Feed and water well in the summer months. It produces suckers, which in time create a bushy shape. A 'must' for the exotic garden and highly recommended. Height at Maturity 5' to 10'. Growth rate: slow Hardy to USDA Zone 8A
To plant and grow them west of the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific NW, you will need to make a mixture containing 50% good potting soil, with 25% landscape sand & 25% small pea gravel. Have the root ball raised about 1/4 out of the hole but mounded up with the soil mixture (never use beach sand in the soil mix). Plant in an area that will get early morning and mid day sun during the winter months. I recommend using a water meter the first few years.
