Alexander Palm, Ptychosperma elegans

Faster growing palm which is very desirable for tropical domestic gardens with a head that looks like a feather duster. Available in single and multi-trunks.

This palm is more cold hardy than the King Alexander Palm and can withstand temperatures as low as 35˚F.
