Foxtail Palms

Foxtail Palms, native to Northern Australia are one of the most attractive known palm species. They can be told apart from other palms by their single grey trunk, grow to 10 metres and sprout light green feathery fronds. Foxtail Palms thrive in warm dry climates and are fast growers.  They handle a light frost, are particularly strong against disease and pests and are resistant to the lethal yellowing disease. These easy to grow palms have a wide tolerance to different soil types, including rocky sands and alkaline limestone soils. They make an excellent addition to all climatic areas. Foxtail palms are ideal for growing along the medium strip of the streets.
