Hi! I'm pretty new to gardening & this past July I had a decent sized Lady Palm planted.. it was doing great until this week.. now it's limping over & has some brown fronds.. the soil is damp. I live in SC.

Please help.. I love this tree!

I didn't realize Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa) could be grown as landscape plants as far north as Charleston. How often do they get watered and are they perhaps getting too much direct sun? I have many Lady Palms growing in my yard, all in the shade of large oak trees; they get watered twice a week when the irrigation system is active.
