Foxtail Palm Description

The foxtail palm can reach heights of 30 feet, growing fast in full sun, but the plant is tolerant of both sunny and shady conditions.

The pinnately compound leaves or fronds can reach lengths of 8 to 10 feet and are attached to a petiole or stem that is about 6 to 12 inches long.

Foxtail Palm Maintenance

Water twice a month during summer and once every six weeks during the winter months.

In order to keep your palms looking healthy and attractive, prune your Foxtails’ dead fronds.

It is extremely important to prune properly by cutting six inches away from the trunk.
