    Design IdeasThis smaller Fan Palm is without a doubt the best candidate of any landscape Palm for night lighting. It tends to grow in clusters, but is slow enough to rarely outgrow its space. Plant as a single specimen or group several while young. Very cold hardy, this Palm makes the perfect focal point in a tropical garden that needs to take a frost. Also does well in the reflected heat and glare around swimming pools and spas.
    Companion PlantsBird of Paradise (Strelitzia); Canna (Canna); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Jatropha (Jatropha); Plumbago (Plumbago)
  • Care
    Care Information
    Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system; requires less water when established. 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).
