This palm is not fully hardy and in the winter I wrap it in cloth to prevent the water entering the crown and freezing thereby killing the plant. It survives well outside in this manner. Last year I only gave it a sheltered spot in the garden and it survived well. It will eventually get too large for the post and will have to be replaced. In the mean time I enjoy it. Placing pots on poles gives extra room in the garden as long as the leaves does not give too much shade. It does have some watering problems, but as it can withstand some dryness, this is not too much a problem.
