It is definitely a palm for a big garden.

Yes it certainly is which is such a shame.

It's being used more and more here because of its drought tolerance (even in smaller gardens).

It has become a very common palms over the last couple of decades. In the 1980's it was rarely seen in California. It was also extremely expensive for a very small palm.
