Foxtail Palm Tree

Foxtail Palm Trees are one of Tampa Bay’s more striking and unique palm trees that provide an impressive addition to any landscape.   They quickly grow to their mature height of about 30 feet with impressive foliage including leaves that radiate out in all directions.  The gray and green clean trunk is the foxtail’s signature along with its branches that resemble a fox’s tail.  They have a very deep root system which makes Foxtail Palms resistant to the wind and more drought tolerant than other palms.

Care Information

Make sure you put your foxtail palm in a location that will get plenty of sun.  Since the tree needs an abundance of potassium, choose a fertilizer made for palm trees and apply twice a year.  Mature Foxtail Palms can survive small periods of freezing temperatures as low as thirty degrees but make sure you do everything you can to protect against the need to test it, especially for younger trees.
