Im sorry to burst your bubble but that is NOT a washingtonia palm, but a trachycarpus Fortunei, a chinese windmill palm- not a mexican fan palm, and secondly puyallup is not a 5a zone (unless you actually live in the mountains) but rather a 8a zone. No palm can really live in a 5a zone.

I agree... Trachycarpus for sure.

Bluffton, SC(Zone 9a)
