Got this from Lowes for $30. Its a palm I didnt already have so I thought id splash out.
Its in the front where it will get some light once it gets taller but until then its a fairly shaded spot. Its a hard call really as the entire front gets scorched. The label said that it likes partial shade though.
Still there. I have trimmed the porch hedges back quite a lot and will continue to do so to give this a little more light and space. I can almost walk behind it currently which is a big step up from being almost under the hedge.
Still there. I think I might need to trim back the hedge to give it some extra help and light.
