The legendary Doum palm; was well known to the ancient Egyptians who buried large numbers of the fruits in the tombs of their pharaos. It is perhaps the most easily recognized of all palms as it is one of the few that fork or branch. A large tree is a stunning sight, suitable for warm temperate to tropical climates and extremely drought tolerant. Sunny, very well drained position. Can tolerate temperate clmates, but prefers it hot. It can tolerate lots of water as well, as long as the drainage is good . Very drought tolerant. When planting the seed, make sure to use a very deep pot, since the seed sends down a very long trap root, or "sinker".
