Zone 10-11

Tall, thin, healthy looking, rated to about 40 feet, King palm, Alexander palm, is a fine selection for South Florida.  Every time we see them planted, we say "those are really nice" palms

King palm, Alexander palm is a solitary palm, but often planted in groups of three.  Can be confused with Hurricane palm, but the swollen base of King palm tells you which is which

Handles periods light drought, and food needs are moderate

Can be shocked during trans-planting, so follow the rules to avoid problems

Plant in most any loose soil with a sunny exposure; water to establish and fuss a little year one, then expect carefree growth
