The Phoenix roebelenii palm (a.k.a. pygmy date palm) is one of the
most versatile palms you can own. With its slow growth and a mature
height of 10’-12’ it is an ideal palm for inside a pool cage, as a focal
point out in the landscape, and even as an indoor potted plant.

Any ‘multi-stemmed’ specimens you may have observed are the
results of growing multiple seedlings in one single pot.
       This tree grows well in full sun to partial shade. If it is to be used
as an indoor potted plant it will need the highest light available in your
home to survive. It has moderate drought tolerance once established
in the landscape. Pruning is limited to removing the older fronds as
they turn brown and decline, therefore it is considered a fairly
maintenance free plant.
    If you have a passion for tropical plants, this one is a must have!
