|These rapid-growing tropical palms are grown frequently in Florida, California and the Gulf states. They reach 30 to 80 feet tall, and their rounded crowns are topped by fan-shaped leaves. Clusters of tiny, creamy white flowers hang below the fronds in late spring, and black berrylike fruits appear in winter. Usually too tall for the small garden, so plant them along avenues or borders. When young, can be grown in pots. If potted, water freely in summer. Remove dead leaves.
Fast-growing, often taller than the California Fan Palm, it has large, gray-green, fan-shaped leaves atop an erect trunk. Reaches 50 to 90 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide. In containers, water freely in summer.
