Find the Perfect Palm for Your Project
Few plants offer the beauty and appeal of palm trees and the resort-style, vacation-like effect they create. Here are several varieties that will flourish in the USDA Zone 10b climate of Delray Beach:
Bottle Palm (Hyophorbe lagenicaulis): If you are looking for a small, eye-catching accent palm for a tropical garden or sheltered entrance area, the Bottle palm is a great choice. Its unusual bottle-shaped trunk resembles a cola bottle and makes an excellent container palm. Growing to a maximum of about 12 feet, the palm doesn’t produce many fronds, but they are long and graceful. Bottle palms love well drained soils and require plenty of water and irrigation. They are salt tolerant, but easily damaged by freezing temperatures. At 32 degrees Fahrenheit, you will see damage on the fronds.
Dwarf Sugar (Arenga engleri): This unusual palm has a slender, clean, distinctly ringed trunk. It grows in a cluster to about 12 feet, with new growth emerging from the soil line (similar to clumping bamboo). It blossoms with colorful flowers that are known industry wide for their sweet smell. The Dwarf Sugar palm loves sunshine and water. It does best when it is planted in moist soils and receives regular fertilization. It doesn’t really tolerate drought conditions and can fail to thrive if kept in dry soil with little nutrition.
Mule Palm (xButiagrus nabonnandii): This grand, eye-catching palm is a conversation piece no one else in the neighborhood is likely to have. It’s one of the hardiest feather palms and is a man-made hybrid between the Pindo and the Queen palms. When mature, the Mule Palm displays a dark brown trunk with massive caliper. Its pinnate structured fronds are long with wide, dark green leaflets that resemble a coconut palm. By all definitions, this is the perfect palm, and, despite its tropical appearance, it is cold hardy down to at least 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
