Foxtail palms with seedbags in Thailand

The foxtail palm is from northeastern Australia--Queensland. It can reach a height of 30 to 50 feet and has fronds that are plumose like a "Fox tail". This palm comes from a tropical area, however, and plants outdoors or in the ground in Florida and California are doing great. This is a 'must have' palm.
