Wholesale Palm Trees
Palmco is one of the largest palm plantations in North America, offering wholesale palm trees to landscapers and landscape architects across the nation.
We specialize in growing and sourcing over 30 varieties of the world’s finest FF-grade palms.
With state-of-the-art, fully automated irrigation systems and extensive nutritional programs, we draw on the experience of four generations of Florida growers to bring our customers the best palms money can buy and the customer service to match.
We deliver our palms on-time, in excellent condition, and ready to plant.
Palm Tree Grades
Before you start selecting palm trees for your project, it’s important to understand the three grades defined in the Florida Grades and Standards Manual:
- Florida Fancy (FF) is defined as, “an exceptionally healthy and vigorous palm that is perfectly formed and foliated (subject to the natural growth of the species).” This is the most desirable grade and the grade of our trees at Palmco. The prices of FF-grade palms, however, may not fit every customer’s budget.
- Florida No. 1 is defined as, “a healthy and vigorous palm that is well formed and foliated (subject to the natural growth of the species).” This grade of trees is perfectly acceptable to many customers and easier on the budget.
- Florida No. 2 is defined as, “a healthy palm that is fairly well formed with fair foliage quality (subject to the natural growth of the species).” This grade of tree is not used as frequently as FF and #1 grade trees.
Palmco Stands Out from the Crowd
As Florida’s premier palm tree grower, Palmco provides wholesale customers with varieties and formations of palms that aren’t available in every nursery.
Palmco is a leading supplier of these and many other palm varieties:
Alexander Palm – Although Ptychosterma elegans is a solitary palm by nature, we like to grow them at Palmco as doubles, triples and multi-trunk beauties, too. This Australian native is particularly useful in narrow spaces due to its slender trunk and smaller canopy. The Alexander palm is very versatile and is popular in growing zones 10b-11.
Areca Palm – Palmco is a leading supplier of field-grown Arecas in a variety of sizes, and we have an exceptional depth of inventory. This dramatic tree from Madagascar is a clustering palm, so it has a lush full look. It can reach heights of 15 to 20 feet, making it ideal as a privacy screen or a landscape backdrop. Arecas do best in Zone 10 and up.
Chinese Fan Palm – We offer single, double, triple and multi Chinese Fan configurations of Livistona chinensis. For customers who want a stylized look and feel, consider putting a Diamond Cut or our Palmco Cut on the trunk. This palm grows well in Zones 9a to 11 and can withstand temps slightly below 0°F for limited time periods.
Maypan and Green Malayan Coconut Palms – At Palmco, we guarantee that each of our coconut palms is grown from Cocos nucifera seeds certified by the Jamaican Coconut Industry Board. They are resistant to Lethal Yellowing disease. We have almost every size of coconut available, from 4’ of wood up to 25’ of wood. These palms flourish in Zones 10b to 11 and are highly drought and salt tolerant.
