Recently Shipped Caryota mitis, Fishtail Palm


Dense and Full, the Fishtail Makes a Great Privacy Screen

Fishtails are a clustering palm that grow very densely. Their draping rich green leaves conjure up a tropical mood. Unlike other palm’s feathery fronds, the Fishtail’s foliage is tightly organized in a herringbone pattern that offers privacy in any spot you choose for them.

The Fishtail Palm can be grown in full sun to part shade. They are moderately cold tolerant, preferring temperatures about 55 degrees. They can, however, survive the occasional light frost. They’re moderate growers, usually achieving a height of 20 to 25 ft. tall.

    Packaged well. No broken stems or leaves. Nice plant.

  8. Ryan P. (verified owner)

    It had good growth, but the plant outgrew the pot it was shipped in. They send an email saying not to repot for two weeks, but it just wasn’t sustainable. My advice transfer to a pot that can hold water immediately

  9. Dennis C. (verified owner)

    Absolutely beautiful and healthy plant, arrived early too!

  12. Sharon Pfeifer (verified owner)

    I have ordered 3 and 1 was not doing well when I opened the box.
    It is barely making it but the other 2 are very green.

  13. Linda A. (verified owner)

    I’m very happy to get my fishtail palm, which my favorite nursery wasn’t able to get for me. Unfortunately, the plant was taller than the box it was shipped in so the tallest limbs were broken. I’m sure the rest will overtake those at some point so I remain happy with this plant.

  14. Cathy Lance (verified owner)

    I actually didn’t believe how large this tree would be when it arrived. I have to now get a much bigger pot, much much bigger pot. It is so healthy and well – huge. Did I mention gorgeous? It definitely is that!

  15. Anonymous (verified owner)
