    Hello!

    This palm is about 2 1/2 feet tall. This picture was taken on September 25, 2017 in my backyard in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. I would like some information on this palm so I know how to prepare for Winter, whether to bring it indoors or not. I obtained from fellow who dad grows them and young guy could not remember the name of the palm tree (sigh) thanks!

    Hello Junglekeeper! Thank you very much! I don't know much about them, but I love them look of it! I have had bananas for years (musa basjoo) but last Winter decimated them, even thought they were covered and mulched. Tallest one now is almost six feet!
