According to Desert USA, the height of a mature California fan palm ranges from 20 to 60 feet (6 to 18 meters), and the trunk diameter can be 2 or 3 feet (.6 to .9 meters).

Palms are incredibly hardy and resilient… just give it as much love and attention as you can and watch it grow. :) … keep us updated too!
