Palm trees grow verrrrry slowly. I'm talking maybe a couple of inches a year (if that), so this explains why they are so expensive. No one wants to buy a short squaty palm, they want a tall grown palm. Well, Jevon found a guy on Craig's List that was selling some, so we got 4. Palms sell for around $80 per foot and we got these trees for $200 a piece (a steal!). Had we gone to a nursery, they would have been more expensive. The yard is beginning to come together!
