fan palm treeReview by cheryl - cincinnati, OH Posted on 2013-04-25 03:06:45
I just ordered this palm tree. It was a little smaller than I thought. Just planted it outside and can't wait to see what it does. Will keep you posted on how it grows. Can't wait to see what my neighbor's say. Thanks Michigan bulb.
Hopeful, but disappointedReview by Chris - Cumming, GA Posted on 2012-11-21 07:42:34
I liked the idea of having a small palm in my backyard. I was pleasantly surprised to get FOUR of these is an end of season grab bag. However, they all died in the winter. They're too small to make it through a zone 7 winter. I should have potted them first.
