Slender Alexander – The Right Size Palm for Narrow Spaces
The Alexander Palm is also called the Solitaire Palm. Why? It only grows one trunk. Its narrow stature and moderately sized head makes the Alexander a good choice for smaller yards, or for planting in close proximity to your house.
Alexanders can grow to 25 ft. tall. They prefer full to part sun, and grow best when placed in a spot protected from cold winds. Because the palm is a moderate grower, you can use it indoors for a striking accent. Low maintenance, the Alexander is a “self cleaner” – its aging fronds fall off by themselves. Birds are drawn to their fruits, another plus for this versatile palm.
