Choosing Palms for Zone 10b
Industry professionals depend on Palmco for unique palm tree species that can turn their landscapes into tropical wonderlands. Here are three that will thrive in the humid summers and mild winters of USDA Zone 10b:
Alexander Palm: Also known as the Solitaire Palm, Ptychosterma elegans is a sleek and elegant palm from Australia. With its slender trunk and relatively small canopy, it’s ideal for planting in narrow spaces. Old fronds fall off by themselves, so this palm is a maintenance-free dream. Alexander palms love sun and, if protected from cold and drying winds, will grow moderately to 20 to 25 feet. Although this palm grows naturally as a single, at Palmco we also grow them as doubles, triples and even in multi trunk beauties.
Montgomery Palm: This beautiful but lesser-known palm comes from the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific. A fast grower, Veitchia arecina typically reaches about 25 to 35 feet in overall height. It grows on a single trunk with a canopy of 8 to 10 foot long feathery-textured fronds. In summer, the tree bears yellow flowers followed by fruit that ripens to bright red. Montgomery Palms are moderately salt- and drought-tolerant and can tolerate a mild frost but prefer a sunny, well-drained location.
Thatch Palm or Florida Thatch Palm: Native to Florida, the Thrinax radiata loves the coastal and warm, humid areas of Delray Beach. It has a slender grey trunk with dark green fan-shaped leaves at the top which are about three feet long and have drooping tips. It also produces white flowers on yellow stems. If planted in the shade, the Thatch Palm will stay low to the ground for a long time but will eventually reach 15 to 20 feet. These palms enjoy moist, sandy, well-drained soil, and tolerate salt and drought very well.
