|Design Ideas||This 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!|
|Companion Plants||Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia); Canna (Canna); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Jatropha (Jatropha); Plumbago (Plumbago)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, moist, very porous, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular water, but tolerates periodic drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.|
