Notes and observations about this plant
- I bought two of these palms after reading about them surviving in the winter cold of Chicago. I live in usda zone 5b just south of Kansas City. I had high hopes for my plants but I made a critical mistake in planting them in full sun. If you are going to purchase this palm I would suggest you follow the suggestion of Rocky Grindstaff on the 9-1-11 post and give them shade. (Posted on 6/27/2012 by Aaron Wollard).
- Sun exposure makes a difference
- I have several of these. Some are in full sun and some in morning sun only. The ones that only get morning sun look much healthier and have a faster growth rate. The ones in full sun look a little rough. Almost every day this summer has been above 100 degrees though. I can also say the same for my Sabal Minors. sun exposure makes a difference (Posted on 8/31/2011 by Rocky Grindstaff).
- Love this palm
Love this palm, it sits out in the open, full sun all summer. Endures a foot of snow ever winter. Never recieves any protection and never has any frond damage.
