love them or hate them, queen palms are popular likely at least in part because they are fast growing and so good for nursery production and also for the impatient gardener who is often looking for an "instant" landscape at a relatively cheap price.
right, wrong, or indifferent, more refined or potentially better-looking (and sometimes better-adapted) species are often considered slower growing or more expensive and many folks are interested in investing time and money in other things.
