The Licury Palm, or Syagrus coronata, is a big palm which can reach heights of more than 20 feet, and is native to Brazil. It has a single trunk and a large head of feathery leaves, and is an attractive, fast-growing palm that can be grown both indoors or outdoors, suitable for patios once kept small. Growing this palm is easy, as it needs full sun and regular water in well-drained acidic soils. The palm is not affected by lethal yellowing disease, but vulnerable to butt rot.
The Licury Palm grows well in USDA Zones 9-11, and allowing the palm to receive the right amount of water and sun is key for success. It needs full sun, and should be watered regularly, taking care to let the soil dry in between watering. In especially cold regions, it can be grown in a pot, and should be brought inside in the winter months to protect it from frost and cold temperatures. To ensure it stays healthy, it should have dead fronds removed each year. Additionally, the pot should be large enough to accommodate the growing roots, and it should be kept slightly moist. With the proper care and conditions, the Licury Palm can thrive for years, providing a beautiful and decorative effect for any outdoor or indoor space.
