Foxtail Palm Facts
Originating in Northeastern Australia, these palms are moderately drought tolerant and adapt easily to most installations. The greatest draw to the foxtail palm is quite probably the leaf scars. Though not unique to palm trees, as frond loss creates these scars, the foxtail’s are significantly different.
When exposed to the midday sun, these leaf scars exude an ethereal copper glow.
It is enchanting.
An aborigine with the last name of Wodyeti was supposedly the last man in his tribe who knew how to take care of these plants. That’s where the scientific name, Wodyeti bifurcata, came from. The second half of the name is a Latin-based word which means, “twice divided.” This was in reference to the structure of the leaves on the fronds of this palm which create a fluffy, foxtail, appearance.
Unlike many other plants, the foxtail delights in full sun.
When it is young it will utilize that exposure to speed up its already rapid growth. Of course it can survive in shaded areas as well. Be it in full sun or moderate shade, this tree will add a majestic look to your landscape designs. It will never dwarf your structures as its average growth is only 30 feet high. It will, however, draw attention to the area in which it is planted, so feel free to use it as a standalone piece (especially if you purchase one of our 9 headed versions).
Other Attention Grabbers
While the foxtail palm is certainly a gorgeous specimen, one in which we’ve cultivated much greater numbers of heads than most nurseries, your client might be looking for something different or seemingly more spectacular.
Perhaps the suggestions that follow will fulfill those requests:
Silver Bismarckia Palm– With silvery powder blue leaves, the Silver Bismarckia is sure to impress. Its distinct coloration is as unmistakable as it is unforgettable. Additionally, it’s fairly easy to maintain and notably cold hardy.
Bottle Palm– The swollen trunk of this palm that earns it the “bottle” name is unique. The bulbous look is something that is sure to draw attention. It’s a relatively short tree that is moderately drought tolerant as well.
Sylvestris Palm– Its scientific name, Phoenix Sylvestris, means purple and wild, respectively. Perhaps that wild nature is what makes it such a multi-functional species. It’s used to make wine, toddy, mats and bags. Using it for those purposes is sure to be the envy of the neighborhood.
