The Q&A Archives: Foxtail Palm

Question: Leaves hav yellow circles and brown spots. Stalks have bumpy black dots. Is this normal? Just purchased and planted.

Answer: Tina,

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!

The symptoms on your Foxtail Palm are not normal. Your plant could have a fungal leaf spot or a scale insect infestation, which require very different control methods. I suggest you take a sample to your County Extension Office for identification and control recommendations.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
