    Good morning all. Any help identifying this young palm would be appreciated. Old story...purchased very young palm and kept potted till large enough to plant in the ground and lost the tag along the way. Hope to plant soon, but want to refresh my knowledge of growth habit, etc.

    Thanks, Palm Friends! IMG_1778.JPG IMG_1776.JPG IMG_1777.JPG

    The palm is still young still having its strap leaves, but I will take a stab as it looks like a young 'Syagrus romanzoffiana' aka 'Queen Palm'. The 'Queen Palm' is a very fast grower once planted out.

    The Queen Palms are the tall palms in the center of this picture.
