Palm Trees for Privacy
The beauty of palms is that they are both functional and aesthetic. They work exceptionally well for creating privacy, and their height and the density of their leaves make them ideal for this application. But they are also regal, beautiful, exotic, and elegant. They can also be used to create an atmosphere, to define a space, to accent, or to draw attention.
At Palmco, we offer a wide array of palms for your privacy needs. Here are a few of our favorites:
Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens): Palmco is a leading supplier of field-grown Arecas in a variety of sizes. The dramatic clustering palm features many trunks that spring up from the base of the plant. Sometimes called the Feather Palm, its fluffy, fine-textured fronds give it a lush, full look. Arecas can grow to 20 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter, making them well-suited to privacy screens, hedges and landscape backdrops. The Madagascar native is not very cold hardy, so it is best-suited to Zones 10A and 11.
Fishtail Palm (Caryota mitis): You can recognize this beautiful palm by its swirled layers of ruffled fronds that resemble the jagged tail of a goldfish. It is a bipinnate palm, the only palm with this unusual leaf anatomy. Fishtail palms are clumping palms and are a great alternative to bamboo. Reaching 20 to 25 feet tall, they have exploded in popularity in recent years. If planting them in a row for a privacy screen, plant 5 to 6 feet apart and they will fill in faster. At Palmco, we grow them in the field, some with as many as 7 heads.
Paurotis Palm (Acoelorrhaphe wrightii): The Paurotis or Everglades palm originates in South America but has been in Florida long enough to be considered a native species. It is capable of reaching heights of 20 to 30 feet with a canopy spread of 15 feet in diameter. This versatile clustering palm is dense and thickly covered almost to the ground, making it ideal for privacy screening and hedge applications. In late spring it blooms with white flowers and half inch fruits that start off green, turn orange, and then go black when ripe, adding visual appeal to all your landscape design installments.
