Cold Hardiness: 

 26-28  F.

Trunk type:

Very thick, gray woody trunk once the old leaves have fallen away.

Leaf type:

Palmate with minimal segmentation.


Solitary (single trunk).


Not the easiest palm to grow.  Like warm and humid environments.

Speed of growth:



30 feet

Soil requirements:

Sandy and good drainage.

Sun Requirements:

Full sun.

General Description:

Very nice fan palm.  It is a good palm for places like Florida or Hawaii.  It can be grown in Southern California, but tend to be a bit fickle when small.  They need a fair amount of heat and are not an ideal grower along the coast in California.

Other Notes:

This palm gets quite large and impressive.  Though it is a borderline grower for Southern California, it is worth a try for those who like fans and get a fair amount of heat.
