I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
It could be that the plant was exposed to some type of weed killer injury. Otherwise I am not aware of a problem that would cause such symptoms. You might try contacting your County Extension Office to see about sending them a few photos by e-mail to get assistance from Texas Digital Diagnostics (free service) in determining the cause of your palm's problems.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
