Palm Trees grow world wide. There are more than 2,000 types. Only 12 are native to Florida. We have a selection of a little over 20 varieties used in landscaping here in Southwest Florida.
Washingtonia robusta Very tall and stately, Washington palms are popular landscape palms in Florida and elsewhere. It is a fast grower and can quickly fill in the landscape. Irrigation is required for establishment, but then do not over water, which can cause this desert palm to suffer from root and bud rots.
Phoenix sylvestris Similar to the Canary Island Date palm, the wild date makes an impressive specimen plant. Its large stature and robust trunk can give landscapes a Mediterranean appearance. Unlike other date palms, wild dates are relatively trouble free and easy to maintain. They adapt well to Florida soils and climate.
Roystonea regia Stately and impressive in appearance, the royal is popular in streetscapes and for large buildings. The large size of the palm can overwhelm small structures, so site selection is key. Royals can adapt well to both dry and wet areas, but are usually sensitive to cold.
Phoenix reclinata If given enough room, reclinatas can make for an impressive specimen or a large screen. Reclinatas sucker vigorously without aggressive pruning so they need plenty of room to spread. Reclinatas are often trimmed up to reveal their attractive, slender trunks.
Syagrus romanzoffiana This popular tree is easy to transplant and is relatively care-free. Queen palms have very few pest or disease problems, and with regular feeding, can be a wonderful addition to a tropical landscape, especially where a cold-hardy palm is needed. Its large, gracile canopy quickly fills in a tropical landscape.
Veitchia montgomeryana This popular landscaping palm is of medium stature and is attractive in either single or multiple plantings. With long, pinnate fronds and a slim, stately trunk, Veitchia palms work well in both residential and commercial landscapes. Veitchia palms are available as singles, doubles, and triples.
Archontophoenix alexandrae This regal palm works well as a single specimen, or in a cluster. It has a sturdy, neat appearance with a tropical feel. They should be kept adequately fertilized. Often confused with Alexanders, King Alexanders have a much heavier trunk and much larger, coconut-like fronds. King Alexanders are available as singles, doubles, and triples.
