Description for Serenoa repens silver

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty

Planting and care

Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun to part shade well-drained soil Dry to medium 15 and 30 degrees Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Serenoa repens silver

  • Diligently water your plants. Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather. Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which won’t reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus. Plants do best with 90 inches of rain per year, so unless you live in a rain forest, water regularly.
