Positive palmbob On Mar 2, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Elegant, tall Chamaedorea with big, ridged, oval leaves. This is a relatively fast grower (for a palm in So Cal) and has some moderate cold hardiness (though one of the less cold tolerant of the 'commonly grown' Chamaedoreas)... what it doesn't have is wind or sun hardiness, so needs to be planted in a sheltered place.

Regional...
