Yep I have spaces dug out I have to remove rocks and other things. I will likely do it after summer because the locusts arrived and are in swarms now and it is very hot.

Plant it at night or early in the morning around sunrise. Summer is the prime time for planting palms, it allows them to get established before winter. With your hot and dry summers, this palm is going to need consistent watering probably every other day.

Palms - 4 S. romanzoffiana, 1 W. bifurcata, 4 W. robusta, 1 R. rivularis, 2 B. odorata, 1 B. nobilis, 3 S. palmetto, 1 A. merillii, 1 P. canariensis, 1 BxJ, 1 BxJxBxS, 1 BxS, 3 P. roebelenii, 1 H. lagenicaulis, 1 H. verschaffeltii, 8 T. fortunei, 1 C. humilis, 2 C. macrocarpa, 1 L. chinensis, 1 R. excelsa, 1 S. bermudana, 1 L. nitida

In the pot it is in,  it might go 4 -5 days between deep soakings ( stuff i have in 7+gal containers can go 4 days ) ..Emphasize: -deep  -soak not just a quick squirt w/ a hose... 

That said, since the pot is dark colored and fully exposed to the sun, it will absorb a ton of heat. Heat + wet soil = can cook the roots, even in a larger pot set out where it gets full sun ( Done this myself  a few  times )..

Agree w/ others who have suggested it   -Get -it -planted  -pronto.  

Pretty good chance we're on the cusp of our first 110-115F roasting as June starts  ..So the time to plant  ..is after the sun sets,  before the end of next week.  Supposed to be nice on Saturday..

Ok thank you. I plan on putting it in this space which is the largest available. Here are some measurements of the space compared to the palm. (Edit) In the first photo I meant diameter instead of radius.IMG_0091.thumb.jpeg.f870042ae799c7c6ae8f436734f23be4.jpeg
