Cat Palm has attractive dark green evergreen foliage on a plant with an arching habit of growth. The narrow pinnately compound leaves are highly ornamental and remain dark green throughout the winter.
Cat Palm is an open multi-stemmed evergreen tropical plant with a shapely form and gracefully arching foliage. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance tropical plant, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Cat Palm is recommended for the following landscape applications;
Cat Palm will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.
This tropical plant does best in partial shade to shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is quite intolerant of urban pollution, therefore inner city or urban streetside plantings are best avoided. This species is not originally from North America. It can be propagated by cuttings.
Cat Palm makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. Because of its height, it is often used as a ‘thriller’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag – this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
