Palm Trees Well Suited for Pembroke Pines
As a landscape designer or other professional in the field, it is important for you to note that Pembroke Pines is located in USDA Zone 10B. That means there are specific palms that are better suited for that area. We would like to share two of our favorites with you:
- Chinese Windmill Palm. This slow growing palm will reach average heights of 25 feet but can get as tall as 40 feet in its native environment. It is one of the most cold-hardy palms around, capable of withstanding temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit. The Windmill palm requires some attention to soil density and watering habits. To encourage strong growth, the Windmill palm’s soil must be well drained. If the soil gets waterlogged from excessive watering, the roots may succumb to root rot, which invites pests and disease. That said, extremely dry soil stunts the growth of the Windmill palm. This palm demands fertile soil, so a slow-release fertilizer is recommended twice a year. The branches of the Windmill palm do not droop therefore it requires little pruning.
- Silver Date Palm. Originating in India, this is also a slow growing palm with average heights being 40 feet tall! The Phoenix Sylvestris grows in plains and scrublands. The fruit from this palm species is used to make wine and jelly. The sap is tapped and drunk fresh or fermented into toddy thus the name Toddy palm. The fresh sap can be boiled to make palm jaggery popular in India. The leaves may be used to make mats & bags. Maintenance for the Silver Date Palm is fairly easy. This tree requires some trimming of dead leaves to prevent “skirting”. This particular palm does have spines or sharp edges, so use extreme caution when handling. To prevent nutritional deficiencies, you should always use a good palm fertilizer that has a slow release at least twice a year. The Silver Date Palm performs best with scheduled irrigation.
