Washingtonia Palm, xxxxx

Another name for the Washingtonia is the Mexican Fan Palm Tree. This palm does great in Florida because it likes the sunny, dry conditions of the environment. Often used around hotels, tall buildings, highways and parks because of its rapid growth and tropical appearance in the landscape. Has hook-type barbed thorns along the base of the fronds. Allow lots of room for this fast growing, very tall palm. Hardy down to about 20˚F but foliage can be damaged at that temperature.
