Foxtail Palm


The foxtail palm (Wodyetia bifurcate) is a popular species desired for its elegant, full canopy of 8-10 leaves (when mature) for which it is best distinguished and is often compared to the tail of a fox. Pale green arching fronds have leaflets that radiate out at all angles from the leaf stem. The crown of a foxtail palm will often measure 15-20 feet across when mature. Foxtail palms are thornless, adding to their popularity, especially in active areas. A slender, closely ringed columnar trunk can grow up to 30 ft tall. The foxtail palm bears white blossoms of both sexes at the base of its crown, and a single palm is capable of producing fertile seeds.
