Where To Buy Palm Trees In New York
Boasting more than 600 acres in production, Palmco is the place to go when you want to know where to buy palm trees that are suitable for New York.
We have over 30 varieties of palm trees for sale, and some of them will flourish in the areas of New York located in USDA Hardiness Zone 7, such as the Bronx, Brooklyn, Jamaica and New York City.
Few types of plants offer the beauty and appeal of palm trees.
Small varieties with visible, attractive trunks and fluffy, full-to-the-ground palms are beautiful as backdrops or when surrounded by small or mid-size flowering shrubs. Large varieties, whether majestic or slim and willowy, make striking silhouettes in any environment.
When you are looking for palms to design your customer’s landscape, check out Palmco’s high-quality specimens.
We serve all of Florida and the contiguous U.S., providing a vast selection of palms with differing textures, shapes, heights, and even colors.
Of course, the specimens you choose will depend on the look you’re after, your customer’s budget, and the maneuverability of the plants. Does your client need a mature tree or can they wait for it to grow? Small palms cost less; large, mature palms cost more.
And large palms will require a crane to move them around.
Palm Trees Suitable for USDA Zone 7
- Mule Palm – No one else in town is likely to have this rare, eye-catching specimen! It’s one of the hardiest feather palms and is a man-made hybrid between the Pindo and the Queen palms. The parent palms are cold hardy and have produced an equally cold-hardy offspring, but this will depend on how it was crossed. It grows quickly to about 20 feet. At maturity, the Mule Palm displays a dark brown trunk with a massive caliper. Its pinnate fronds are long with wide, dark green leaflets that look like the fronds of a coconut palm.
- Nitida Palm – This large canopy palm, also called the Carnarvon Fan Palm, comes from the Carnarvon Gorge in Australia. It is one of the fastest growing Livistona species, reaching heights of 40 to 50 feet. The Nitida likes water but is not bothered if it doesn’t get any. It’s also super cold-hardy and can withstand 20°F temperatures and lower without damage. Grow the Nitida palm as avenue plantings or in groups with staggered heights for a spectacular effect.
- Sabal Palm – The Sabal palmetto, also called the Cabbage Palm, is Florida’s state tree and the best known of Florida’s 11 native palms. It 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. This palm prefers a sunny, moist area where it can get watered regularly. Once established, the Sabal is drought tolerant, but can also adapt to wet soil conditions. And, because it’s very cold hardy, it can be grown farther North than most other palms. Sabal is widely used due to its extreme hardiness, availability, and low cost.
