The Jelly palm was/is most certainly one of Elvis's favorites...rumor has him recently sighted in South America growing Jelly palms. This slow-growing specimen is the most cold hardy of the "feather leaf" palms...reliable to about 15 degrees F. Below that temperature, protect the trunks during extended cold. The trunks eventually reach 10', with large 5' long drooping fronds of blue grey emerging from atop the central trunk...truly spectacular where it can be grown. When the plants mature, you'll enjoy the delicious early winter-ripening fruits.
