Palmco grows many varieties of palms that are perfect for the North Port area. Some of these include:
This slow-growing palm, also called the Canary Island Date Palm and the Pineapple Palm, is valued for its impressive appearance and its hardiness. It grows well throughout Florida and much of the southern U.S. It has a massive canopy and caliper, and typically grows to 50 or 60 feet with a trunk thicker than a bridge support.
The majestic crownshaft of the Canary Palm resembles a pineapple, but it has to be manicured to keep it looking good. It enjoys a sunny location and moist, but very well-drained, soil. Cold-hardy at maturity, it can take temperatures into the 20’s, including frosts, with no visible damage.
Caranday is a stunning and rather rare palm that grows to about 30 to 40 feet in cultivation. Two-foot round, palmate (fan-shaped) leaves grow from the top of the trunk and range from light green to light blue in color.
In the fall, it also develops small white flowers that are followed by berry looking fruits in summer. This palm can withstand temperatures as low as 23°F and tolerates drought and limited flooding. It is stunning when planted in groups of three at staggered heights.
This is one of the hardiest landscape palms currently in production. It has graceful, feather-like blue-green fronds and slowly grows to an average of 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide in cultivation. Another common name for it is Jelly Palm because of its bright yellow fruit that can be made into a jelly.
The Pindo likes a sunny, moist, and well-drained location. It can take full sun from a very young age but will usually grow taller in full shade. It’s ideal for Zones 8 through 11 and is very drought and cold tolerant.
The beautiful clustering Paurotis Palm, also known as the Everglades Palm, forms a tropical oasis of slim trunks, fan-shaped leaves, and a casual, naturalized Florida look. The leaves are green on top and silver underneath.
This palm makes a great focal point and looks spectacular with nighttime up-lighting.
It is cold hardy throughout South Florida to 25°F. It grows slowly in full to partial sun, tolerates salt, and can eventually grow to 25 feet with a spread as wide as 15 feet. Paurotis is native to the Everglades and is protected by Florida law in the wild.
