I have one plant potted for over a year, has deep colored maroon leafs and is growing slow but steady. I understand it can only take about 35 degrees or it would be in the ground here in zone10a, Port Charlotte, Fl.

This is a great looking palm, but seems to grow differently from the non-maroon, or normal form... suckers ALWAYS, and is much slower, taking many more years to actually form trees. Seed from these plants will produce normal colored seedlings as well as maroon seedlings.
