    Design IdeasThis is not only incredibly hardy for a palm, it is the best choice for small gardens. Growing as a single, hairy trunk it begins as a foundation plant that eventually matures as a tall, thin column.Because it does not branch, and keeps a very tight foliage head, it fits very well into small spaces, sideyards, or as a specimen in rock gardens. Plant three or more close together to achieve a cluster or grove in tropical garden schemes. Ideal plant for swimming pool enclosures. This palm is an appropriate choice for historic Victorian era landscaping, and is often found in older English gardens in southern Britain!

  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide organically rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Follow regular watering schedule during first few growing seasons to establish a deep, extensive root system. Performs best with regular water or with environmental humidity, but will tolerate some drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
