The scientific name (Thrinax radiata)  is native to Florida Keys.  It adapts to a lot of different conditions. The Florida Thatch Palm is a wonderful palm tree in any landscape, especially those landscapes which love to adorn a hammock. Florida Thatch Palm Tree can also grow indoors.

 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.
