Hawaii flowering tree
Small colony growing in botanical gardens, Hawaii
My baby foxtail, a gift as a liner from Marie Selby Botanical Garden last fall. It has doubled in size since planting and now, with a healthy stem, should grow somewhat apace.

More typical look of plant in southern California where it is often not watered well enough, subjected to cold winds and unfertilized

Bought this plant early 2007 to use on my porch and it has been doing good. We had a frost 2 weeks ago and I lost 2 leaves.

Very odd, foxtail palm flowering in a pot in Commerce, CA - palm does not look real happy either
growing pretty well in Palm Desert, California... this is one of only a handful of crownshafted species that can tolerate this hot and dry climate
