Design Ideas This 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 Plants Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia); Canna (Canna); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Jatropha (Jatropha); Plumbago (Plumbago)
Care Provide average to lean, sandy or rocky, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular moisture, but tolerates periodic drought, particularly in coastal regions. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.
