Foxtail Palm

The Foxtail Palm is becoming an extremely popular palm in southern climates. In fact, the Foxtail palm tree is the most used landscape palm tree in the world. It is suitable for moist sub-tropical and tropical climates. It is also known by the botanic name Wodyetia bifurcata. Foxtail Palms are native to the Northern Australia. It can be grown as a potted palm so long as it's cared for properly, but it likely will quickly outgrow its pot since it's rate of growth of medium to fast. Its moderately drought tolerant, handles a variety of soil conditions very well, is typically is free of pests, and handles neglect fairly well - ultimately it's an easy palm to grow... if you have the right climate.
