THis is the most hardy of the Joey palms, and I can ALMOST grow it in zone 9b... have kept one alive now for 4 years, but I sure wouldn't say it's happy. It will probably make it another year or so only. THsi palm looks a lot like the common Joey Palm in having huge, unsplit diamond-shaped leaves that erupt right out of the ground, but it also has a bluish-white cast to the undersides of the leaves making it Ultr-magnificent- an excellent palm if you can grow it- needs LOTs of humidity- constant, actually. A few skilled growers are having good luck with this palm here in So Cal. From Malaysia.
