Silver Date Palm

Got this from Lowes for $12 in February 2012.

This was one of three and grows to about 25 feet tall.

Silver Date Palm July 2012

Quite a few of the stems were dead, and I was just wondering if that was because I cut off some of the coiled roots to limit girdling? It looks healthy and has a new shoot coming out.

Just Planted, however, it had tons of coiled roots and so I chopped a few off, as seen in one of the photos. It was an unerving experience as I was afraid of killing it, so now only time will tell.
