Wodyetia-bifurcata, Foxtail Palm

One of the more newly popular palms is wodyetia-bifurcata, Foxtail Palm from northern Australia, so named because of its full bushy fronds that resemble its namesake. This palm is fast growing, reaching up to 30 feet. It has a single trunk with a canopy of approximately 9 fronds, growing best in zones 10A - 11. I have one in my central Florida zone 9 garden, but it was adversely affected by the winter 2009 unusually long freeze period. I've seen more mature specimens nearby, but they too were damaged by the cold, so it's best to use this in the proper zone. It is moderately salt and drought tolerant, with no major pest problems.
