The Foxy Lady palm is my fastest growing palm out of over 110 species in my mature landscape. In fertile soil and lots of water it puts out several leaves per year and continues growing in the winter, slower of course though. I'm in the SF Bay Area in N. CA and the worst winter damage it has exibited is some minor spotting on horizontal leaflets. This is the most tropical looking palm species in my Archontophoenix dominated garden.

we need this palm to find its way to Central Florida! i am in love with it! it reminds me of the foxtail queen, and actually i wouldn't mind having either one in my yard. if it really is that hardy, i wouldn't think twice about having one...or two or three haha

THis is a wonderful cross of two relatively common species in cultivation. THe resulting hybrid has more cold tolerance than either parent- great palm for Southern California! It has drooping, premorse (bitten off ends) leaflets and a grey, speckled stem and crownshaft. It's not a fast grower, but steady. Takes pretty good frost. In Thousand Oaks, California, just northwest of LA, where both parents fail to survive, this one makes it.
