Positive palmbob On Aug 24, 2003, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is a very slow growing fan palm, but if you need a nice looking, small palm with attractive spoke-like leaves for a smaller, somewhat shady area of your garden, consider this one. It is a suckering species, but remains as a small clump its entire life, never spreading more than a foot or so. At its base are a lot of upwardly pointing spines in a swirl, so careful when pruning off dead leaves. It does better in warmer, subtropical areas, but many are growing it in So Cal (including me)... often grown in the sun, it seems to like shade more (but not deep shade).. sun turns its leaves yellowy. Native of China and Vietnam
