Overlapping leaf-bases grow from three distinct points of the trunk, forming a triangle, hence the name Triangle Palm.

that has continues release formula twice a year during growing season.

There is a great book, written by David A. Francko that I really like, it’s called “Palms Won't Grow Here and Other Myths: Warm-Climate Plants for Cooler Areas ”. It goes into the details on how you can grow cold hardy palms in zones 7, 6 and even 5. This is the perfect foundation book for the gardener who would like to see a banana next to his cherry tree and a palm between his maples. It got great reviews and 5 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon.
