Washingtonia are impressive palms suited to indoors in the colder months but can be relocated outdoors when the temperature is reliably over 5 degrees.
The Washingtonia is native to the southern United States and the north of Mexico. The plant is also known as the Mexican Fan Palm because of its large fan-shaped leaves.
Tall, fast-growing, and evergreen, the slender trunk swells at the base when it ages. Large fan-shaped leaves with leaflets up to 1.5m long can carry sprays of small white flowers, followed by dark brown fruits.
