Product description

For sale are 6 Alexander palm seedlings approximately between 4 and 7 inches tall. Also known as solitaire palm.

The Alexander has a "head" that's a more moderate-size scale than some larger palms, allowing it to be planted in fairly narrow spaces.

Self-cleaning palms like the Alexander are highly prized for ease of care since aged fronds fall off by themselves.
Alexander palms grow to an ultimate height of 20 to 25 feet, and prefer full to part sun locations though they'll grow just fine in part shade.

They do best in warmer areas - Zones 10A and 10B - especially when they're placed in a spot that's protected from drying or cold winds.

This palm is a moderate grower and can even be grown indoors where there's enough height and light to let it thrive. Alexanders are moderately drought-tolerant once they're well-established.

Plant care
Use organic peat moss or top soil as a soil amendment when planting an alexander. Fertilize three times a year - in spring, summer, and autumn - to keep the fronds full and deep green.

The fruit produced by a mature palm is a good food source for birds.
This tree prefers well-drained, slightly sandy soil in full sun, although it can tolerate light shade. The plants require supplemental water as they establish, but once mature, these trees can withstand short periods of drought. They are also quite tolerant of saline soils. Fertilize every 4 months with a time release palm food. Many plant them in groups of 3 to form a cluster as they grow.
Because of its slender gray-ringed trunk and the moderate scale of the head, an alexander can be planted in a small yard - and in close proximity to the house as an architectural accent.

Plant 5 or 6 feet or more from the house, positioning multi-trunk palms in a way that makes sense for future growth.Avoid placements where the fronds touch walls.

You can plant these palms as close as 3 feet from a fence or short wall provided the head of the palm clears the top of the structure.

If you're planting a row of Alexanders, place them 5 or 6 feet apart.

Alexander palms are fine in large containers, and can be used as striking interiorscape specimens if they've been acclimated to an indoor space.
