A “Go-To” Variety for Creating Tropical Scapes
The Foxtail Palm is known and loved for its stately gray trunk with big tufted fronds that conjure up the image of fox’s bushy tail. Foxtails are fast growers, and can reach a height of 30 ft. After it flowers, the tree puts forth clusters of colorful red fruits. Some gardeners cluster Foxtails in groups of three to create a true tropical oasis.
Plant your Foxtail in a spot that will receive at least six hours of direct sun per day. The Foxtail is moderately salt tolerant, and does well in coastal areas. They appreciate well-drained sandy soil. Once established, the tree is drought tolerant, though regular watering is recommended. Foxtails need feeding in spring, summer and autumn with a granular palm fertilizer containing micro-nutrients. Occasionally, adding manganese or magnesium keeps the fronds looking their best.

Fantastic Transaction – we were worried on the ship time however the plant was extremely packed well and it was delivered in good order – looking exactly like the pictures they shared about the plants being sent.

I got two of these and a Pygmy Date Palm in March 2022. I planted them in the backyard. They were beautiful. I watched them getting taller and taller. I fertilized them every three months (my soil sucks). These trees were looking great! Then I left for the entire month of December… we had two days of freezing temps in Savannah, Ga. It killed both trees plus my Pygmy Date Palm. So, I said all that to point out… if it EVER freezes where you live, don’t plant these. If it never freezes, get these, they’re excellent!
Is this an appropriate indoor plant? Thanks!

Well worth purchase! I would order from them again in a heartbeat!
Communication – there has been a lot of emails from the moment you order, sends you an actual photo of the plant that they will send, sends you updates as soon as they ship with a tracking number. Provides care guide, how to unbox, what to do when it arrives.
Product quality – this palm tree arrived very healthy and green. Signs of new growth and very vibrant green color.
Packaging – you could really tell that they researched on how to keep the plant secured while in transit. There were bamboo stakes to push the plant at the bottom of the box to prevent from getting crushed. Brown packaging cover to secure dirt from spilling out.
