A palm not for the faint of heart here in the PNW. Almost certain to die unless a rain canopy is errected during the winter. Deep drainage is essential for survival. More people have killed this palm than any other in these parts. Many fall victim when people mistake them for Windmill palms and seem to be readily available. I sure some people unknowingly still think they've killed a Windmill without being able to see the difference. Cheers, LPN.
