This attractive small palm is noted for its grey hour glass shaped trunks which are topped with soft green, feathery,
fishtail-like leaves with tips that appear jagged and torn. Although able to reach 40 feet in height,
the Foxtail Palm is most often seen 15 to 30 feet in height with a variable spread.
The four foot long, branched flower stalks hang below the crownshaft throughout the year and display large, orange fruits.
These blooms give way to bright red, showy sprays of 2-3 inch long fruits which ripen year round.
