Few types of plants offer the beauty and appeal of palm trees.
Some people prefer formal, symmetrical gardens with lots of flowering plants. Others like an alpine look with rocks, water, and pine trees. Some prefer a desert landscape with cactus, ice plant, and other drought-tolerant plants.
However, one of the most popular landscape themes is a lush, tropical one with palm trees as the focal point. There’s nothing quite like the resort-style, vacation-like effect that palm trees create.
If you are looking for an unusual palm tree, something out of the ordinary to make a unique statement in your landscape, we have a few suggestions:
Dwarf Sugar (Arenga engleri)
This unusual palm, also simply called the Sugar Palm, has a slender, clean, distinctly ringed trunk, and blossoms with colorful, fragrant flowers. It grows naturally in a cluster, with new growth emerging from the soil line (similar to clumping bamboo). It makes a very attractive standalone specimen. Growing to a maximum height of about 12 feet, it is drought-resistant and ideal for water-conserving landscapes (or xeriscaping). It enjoys a sunny area moist and well drained area, where it will not dry out. This palm loves water and will grow quicker if kept on a regular watering schedule. Cold hardy to the mid 20’s, it can handle mild freezes and frosts with minimal damage.
Paurotis (Acoelorrhaphe wrightii)
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. When kept well-trimmed, this is one palm that can look spectacular with nighttime uplighting. It is cold hardy throughout South Florida to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. It grows slowly in full sun to partial shade, is salt tolerant, and can eventually reach a height of 25 feet with a spread as wide as 15 feet. Paurotis is native to the Everglades and, in the wild, is protected by Florida law. It is well-suited to residential and commercial landscaping.
Pindo Palm (Butia capitata)
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. It’s also called the Jelly Palm due to its bright yellow fruit which can be made into a jelly. This highly variable palm features leaf colors that vary from blue-gray to blue-green and blue-silver. The palm enjoys a sunny, moist, and well-drained location. It can take full sun from a very young age, but tends to grow taller under canopy or full shade.
