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.
