Facts About the Royal Palm Tree
When it comes to purchasing and planting Royal Palm trees, there are some things you definitely need to know. We would like to provide you with all the necessary facts to ensure that your installation comes out just the way your clients had in mind.
Royal palm trees are native to both Florida and Cuba as well as Central & South America and the Caribbean Islands. Many people consider them to be the most beautiful palms in the world. This is due to their large stature and striking appearance which makes themt notable in any landscape design.
Considered an architectural dream, it is no wonder that the Royal palm is used for high end homes, gated communities, resorts, shopping centers, and to line streets like Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. Royal palms create stunning tropical barriers wherever they are planted.
The Royal palm is considered a self-pruning palm because it will release its leaves during strong winds. This ensures the tree will not topple over during hurricanes. Since they tower over most other palms, growing to heights of 80 feet tall, this helps them survive.
When properly fertilized, Royal palms can grow up to a foot per year. They are hardy in zones 10 and 11. Preferring full sunlight, they will soak it up for 8 or more hours each day. They are also fond of water and will thrive when supplemental irrigation is applied.
Other Impressive Options
While your clients may be asking for Royal palms, there are other impressive options you could present to them. These are some of our favorite palms when it comes to adding specimen or focal point palms:
Paurotis (Acoelorrhaphe Wrightii). This palm is also native to South Florida and is commonly known as the Everglades palm. It is very versatile, requires moderate maintenance, and can be a beautiful focal point for any yard. Plus, it has no known pest problems!
King Alexander (Archontophoenix alexandrae): The King Alexander Palm is a stately accent to any landscape. It works well in groups but looks great as a centerpiece as well. This highly desirable palm for USDA Zones 10B-11A will add a tropical feel to any installation. And, it is far more cold-hardy than the other palms it resembles and can withstand temperatures as low as 26°F.
