Benefits of Growing Coconut Palm Trees in Your Landscape
Adding coconut palm trees to your landscape is one of the best ways to improve the overall look of your home and outdoor décor. Palm trees are beautiful, affordable, and add elements of the coastal landscape. In addition, they are extremely low maintenance, which means you will save on watering costs as they require minimal water consumption.
Coconut palms beautify not only your landscape but also enhance your garden’s biodiversity. These trees provide food and a home for nesting birds and local wildlife. In addition, they minimize landscaping costs because their roots are easy to contain in pots. In addition, palm trees do not require weed trimming around the trunks.
Our Coconut Palm Tree Options
Coconut- Green Malayan: Hailing from Jamaica, this palm is both salt and drought tolerant. Green Malayan’s are smaller than Maypans, but they can still reach heights between 50 and 80 feet! Though they are often referred to as Dwarf Malayans the reality of this term is more specific to the height at which they will produce coconuts. Green Malayans will produce fruit when there’s just 2-3 feet of grey wood visible. Luckily, Palmco has all sizes of Green Malayans, from 4 feet of wood all the way up to 25 feet!
Coconut- Maypan: Also native to Jamaica, Maypans are a sturdy, hybrid coconut palm. The heights they reach are no different than the Green Malayan, but the design of their big bottomed trunks is what helps you tell the difference. They were engineered to be exceptionally cold hardy and resistant to Lethal Yellowing. They are low maintenance palms, self-pruning, like the Green Malayan. The coconuts from these trees are used for all sorts of purposes making them one of the most useful plants on the planet.
High Plateau Coconut: A newer palm for those of us at Palmco, the High Plateau Coconut is a native of Madagascar. These palms are hardy against fire, drought, frost, cold, and potentially even hurricanes. High Plateau Coconuts appear to be resistant to Lethal Yellowing too. They generally reach heights between 30 and 50 feet tall and grow at a slow rate. You will see the most success with these palms when you plant them in USDA Zones 9A-11. They prefer full sun and can handle a variety of soil types though they naturally grow along sandy riverbeds. It’s a good idea to make sure they get the appropriate amount of water to keep them in optimum health.
