I just bought two majesty palms at home depot.I heard there shade plants and love water. How true is this and what kind of soil should I put them in? There 10-12 feet tall,and there going in the ground.and How much cold can they handle at night time


I have seen these planted in the ground here and they were huge. They were positioned on the southwest side of the house(protected from north winds which can be severe here). My guess to minimum temperature would be 40 degrees. Remember: these are topical NOT desert palms which can take colder temps. Hope I have helped!
