    What's looking Exotic in 2020

    No not any more. I never showed any growth last year, it flowered like crazy the year before. Must have known it was dying. It had been there for at least 20 yrs.

    Chamaerops planting and questions.

    Well I'd leave it, pretty sure it will sort itself out, if you are worried you could scrape and inch or two of soil away from round the stem, might make watering easier until its established, as well.
