Everything You Need to Know About the Mast Tree
Florida humidity can cause the temperamental Italian Cypress to suffer with root rot, spider mites, fungus, and cypress canker disease. When you need a unique, eye-catching, easy-to-maintain evergreen substitute, consider the Mast Tree from Palmco.
When landscaping luxury residential properties, resort hotels, golf courses, and other locations in South Florida, there are too few choices for tall, but narrow, columnar tropical trees with beautiful evergreen foliage.
Fairly new to Florida grower production, the Mast Tree (Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula’) is destined to become a popular landscaping choice.
Native to India and Sri Lanka, Mast Trees flourish in Florida’s warm, humid climate and will attract attention in any landscape. They have become popular with landscapers, architects, and designers who are using them to frame entryways, cover vertical drain-pipes, line avenues and driveways, act as tall hedges, as architectural accents, and as privacy, noise, and windbreak screens.
They are fast growing (to 30 to 45 feet) and need space to stretch out (to a full-grown width of 4 to 5 feet).
The tree’s lush foliage ranges from coppery brown when new, to light lime green, to a glossy dark green as the trees age. Leaves remain on the tree in all seasons, almost completely covering the trunk, and the natural color contrast makes a spectacular show when the trees are planted in groups.
Fragrant star-like pale green flowers appear once a year in the spring or summer and typically last for two to three weeks. Due to their color, they are barely noticeable, but will attract butterflies and birds.
Mast Trees are easy to maintain, have very little leaf drop, no notable pest threats, are drought-tolerant, moderately salt-tolerant, prefer well-drained rich clay, loam, or sandy soils, and will thrive in full sun and tolerate partial shade. Young plants need protection from winds, but the trees are remarkably flexible when mature and will bend like bamboos in a storm.
So, if your customers are looking for a gorgeous evergreen tree to accent their yards or businesses, the Mast Tree is definitely one to consider. With its easy maintenance and rare leaf drop your customers will appreciate its constant beauty year-round. It is certainly a perfect substitute for the Italian Cypress!
