Q.Can A Foxtail Palm Be Planted To Achieve A Curved Trunk ?

Zone 91311 | alan.d.dosa added on April 20, 2020 | Answered

One week ago I planted a 6ft Foxtail. I just purchased (not yet planted) an 8ft foxtail. Can I plant them about 1ft apart and at a slight angle to achieve a curved trunk look safely ? I’m in So.Calif. zone 9
