Washingtonia Palm

Washingtonia Palm

Care Information

Left in a natural state, browned fronds of a washingtonia palm will form a very long "hula skirt" of thatch. Most people, however, prefer a cleaner look and trim off old fronds fairly often. Once the palm is too tall to reach, leave the old fronds on or hire someone to trim. "Boots" (old leaf bases) are a bright and attractive red-brown while the palm is young. As they age, you can remove them by hand or leave them on (they'll fall off on their own eventually) to form a spiky decoration above the smooth trunk.

  1. Light Needs: Full Sun
  2. Watering Needs: Water your new palm thoroughly with 4 to 5 gallons of water to drench the soil after planting it. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, until the tree shows signs of new growth
