King Palm Single Trunk


This solitary or multi-trunked palm is handsome and stately. Feathery leaves are green above and greyish-green below; old leaves shed cleanly leaving a smooth green trunk. Weeping clusters of amethyst flowers hang from the base of the crown. The King Palm is highly recommended for nearly frost-free areas and will grow in full sun to part shade with occasional summer watering.
