The Q&A Archives: Areca Palm & Shade

Question: I have an Areca palm that is very old and rotting away. We tried to remove the rotted wood, but the whole thing is dieing and new shoots don't seem to last.It is on the west side of our screen porch, and is very necessary. I also have a beautiful shade garden by it. If I have to take it out, what can I plant there that will grow fast and give the shade I need? Thank you.
