Best Palm Trees for Zone 8b
Here are a few of the palm trees we recommend for Zone 8b and 9a:
European Fan or Mediterranean Fan Palm
Chamaerops humilis is a popular variety that looks exotic in any landscape. It features fan-shaped leaves and produces small yellow flowers in the spring. It is wind-resistant and one the hardiest of all palms. Growing to only about 10 feet tall, it makes a stunning focal point in spaces of any size.
xButiagrus nabonnandii is a grand eye-catching conversation piece that no one else in your neighborhood is likely to have. It a man-made hybrid between the Pindo and the Queen palms, and mature specimens are quite rare. Mule Palms have a dark brown trunk with massive caliper. The pinnate structured fronds are long with wide, dark green leaflets that look like a coconut palm.
Despite its tropical appearance, it is cold hardy down to about 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Sabal palmetto is Florida’s state tree and the best known of Florida’s 11 native palms. This species grows very slowly but can reach up to 60 feet tall. The large, light green fan leaves emerge from a tight, round, semi self-cleaning crownshaft. They prefer a sunny, moist area where they can get watered regularly. Once established, the Sabal is drought tolerant, but can also adapt to wet soil conditions.
Phoenix sylvestris is a very classy palm. Growing only one to three feet per year, it will eventually reach about 40 feet.
The slim trunk has an interesting diamond pattern created by leaf scars, and we can do a special cut to make the deep orange of the trunk really stand out. The bushy fronds have stiff, pointy leaves with spines along the stems, so keep the tree a safe distance from driveways and walkways. Sylvestris is very cold hardy, drought-tolerant and moderately-salt-tolerant.
