It has a fast growth rate and can reach up to 80 feet tall. The Mexican Fan Palm’s slightly curved trunk is narrower than similar varietals, and its bright green foliage displays a red streak on the undersides. This palm adapts to a wide range of soil types and climates. It is a cold-hardy palm that can resist temperatures as low as 15 degrees Fahrenheit. It is drought and salt tolerant once planted.
