King Palms For Sale
The King Palm has a very noble look about it.
It’s also called the King Alexander Palm (Archontophoenix alexandrae) and is very attractive when planted in a group.
The fronds on a King Palm resemble those of a coconut palm, but this majestic palm bears only small fruits. King Palms are popular throughout Florida, and are a great addition to any landscaping project because they add an elegant look with very little maintenance.

The King and Queen of Palm Trees
Where there’s a king, there is usually a queen, and there is also a Queen Palm. However, there are some marked differences between the two species.
Both trees are very popular in more tropical regions of the United States, such as California and Florida. However, the King Palm is native to Australia, while the Queen Palm is native to South America.
The King Alexander frond looks just like a coconut palm frond and its trunk looks similar to an Adonidia. You will definitely get a tropical look and feel from this palm in landscapes located within zones 10B-11A.
The Queen Palm is close in height to the King Palm.
The King can grow up to 40 feet tall while the Queen can also grow up to 40 feet.
The Queen may also require more maintenance because she will drop brown fronds and small orange fruits. Although the King Palm also produces fruits, they are much smaller. The fruit can be a hazard if not cleared periodically.
The Queen Palm is flexible in terms of soil requirements and a bit hardier than the King.
The Queen should be in full sun, while the King can do well in either full sun or shade. Both palms should also be placed in well-drained soil with moderate watering. The Queen may be more susceptible to potassium deficiency, so fertilizing is important.
