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.
Fast becoming one of the most
popular landscaping palms in the tropics and sub-tropics. It is an extremely hardy palm,
being able to take full sun from a very early age, drought tolerant, wind tolerant, and
frost tolerant as well.
This spectacular palm was only discovered in the late 1970's and because of demand for
seeds and it being endemic to only a very small area there developed a flourishing black
market in its seed for several years. Even today, the Queensland Government still has the
palm on its endangered species list, even tho there are now tens of thousands of the palms
growing throughout the world, many of which are now fruiting.
This palm is
in high demand for landscaping in tropical and sub-tropical areas. It also makes a great
house plant for a sunny location.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I cant really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

Rare Palm Seeds
Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised.
Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,
refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.
Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
