Fort Lauderdale Wholesale Palm Trees
Most of us are familiar with the more common species of palm trees that line our streets, such as Queen Palms and Royal Palms. But are you aware of other unusual varieties that can transform your ordinary landscape into a conversation piece?
Palmco is dedicated to providing Fort Lauderdale landscape architects and landscapers with extraordinary varieties of wholesale palm trees at reasonable prices.
At Palmco, we’ve been growing and nurturing palm trees for 30 years.
Our fertile setting on Pine Island provides a long growing season that allows tropical palms to develop to their most beautiful potential. Our state of the art “green” growing process ensures that our plants grow healthy and strong and give our customers the quality they demand. Palmco palms can be found at many prestigious locations around the world.
Our unusual varieties of palms include:
Canary Palm or Canary Island Date Palm (Phoenix canariensis)
This slow-growing palm is valued for its bold appearance and its extreme hardiness, allowing it to grow well throughout much of the southern U.S. It has a massive canopy and caliper, and typically grows to 50 or 60 feet. The majestic shaft resembles a pineapple but needs to be manicured to keep a nice appearance. The Canary Palm can survive everything from partial shade to full sun and is well-suited to USDA Zones 8b to 11.
Foxtail Palm (Wodyetia bifurcata)
An Australian native, this noble palm grows to about 30 feet in full sun and produces a spectacular foliage display. It has a slender, self-cleaning trunk and stunning, fluffy looking fronds. Leaf scars often reflect a copper color in the sunlight. Foxtail is a regal addition to any landscape. It has grown in popularity because it’s so versatile; it will tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions, such as alkaline limestone soils and rocky sands. It should be protected from frost but is ideal for USDA Zones 10a to 11.
Maypan Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera)
The Maypan Coconut, which originates in Jamaica, is a single-trunk palm that can grow from 50 to 80 feet tall, with a moderate growth rate. It is a hybrid and has been engineered to be an exceptionally cold hardy palm. The Maypan has a high salt tolerance and the ability to grow in full the sun, making it ideal for growing on or near the beach. And you never have to worry about pruning it; when a frond dies or a coconut is ripe, it will fall from the tree. It loves a warm climate and is ideal for planting in USDA Zones 9a to 11. Palmco only grows coconuts from Jamaican Certified seeds.
Silver Bismarckia (Bismarckia nobilis)
Native to the island of Madagascar, Bismarckia is a single trunk palm that can grow up to 30 feet, so it needs plenty of space. It’s named for the first chancellor of the German Empire, Otto Von Bismarck, and is one of the most beautiful and desirable fan palms. It features very large silvery blue fan-shaped fronds that reach 10 feet across. The colors are striking and it is best used as a very large, dramatic specimen. It also produces small fragrant flowers in the spring. Bismarckia is very cold hardy and suitable for planting in USDA Zones 8b to 11.
Triangle Palm or Three Sided Palm (Dypsis decaryi)
This is a gorgeous palm with an unusual shape and coloring, making it an attention-getter in any landscape. Instead of a typical crownshaft, Triangle Palms have overlapping leaf bases that form in three vertical columns set approximately 120 degrees apart on the main stem, forming a triangular shape. The leaves are a unique powdery blue-grey and arch gracefully upward from the trunk. It is a slow to moderate grower to 20 or 25 feet, drought- and cold-tolerant once established, and self-cleaning. Plant the Triangle Palm in USDA Zones 10a to 11.
