Palm Tree Options
Palmco grows over twenty varieties of palm trees on our slice of paradise and would love to show you around. If you ever happen to be in the area, please stop by for a tour.
For now, we’d like to present some palm tree options for your consideration.
First, consider the Montgomery Palm.
This is a tree that you probably haven’t seen too much of as it is terribly underused. It’s a fast growing palm that adores the warm Florida weather. Originating on the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, it bears some resemblance to the Adonidia Palm thanks to its slim trunk and leaf scars. However, it has a completely different frond and canopy structure and grows a good deal taller than the Adonidia.
These trees are ideal for small spaces and will not dwarf the residences they enhance.
Next, let’s take a look at the Dwarf Sugar Palm.
A native of the Philippines, this palm tree reaches an average height of 10 feet tall. It has dark green leaves and distinct rings on its trunk. This palm grows in clusters which make it great for screen designs but, when given space and time to grow, it makes a gorgeous focal piece. It produces fragrant flowers that are quite colorful.
Unlike other palms though, the fruit is not edible.
If you’re looking for a palm with edible elements, there’s always the Sabal (or Cabbage Palm) but we also recommend the Pindo, or Jelly Palm.
This tree produces fruit whose flavors are compared to a banana and pineapple mix. The fruit of this palm makes a delightful jelly thereby warranting its name. It’s a slow grower and will require some pruning as it doesn’t drop its dead fronds. Also, we recommend that you install this tree at least ten feet from paved surfaces due to the mess the fruits can make when they fall.
We may have saved the best for last: the Silver Bismarckia.
This is the tallest tree we’ve suggested thus far, reaching up to 60 feet tall. It is no doubt one of the most desirable fan palms available to date. It has a strong trunk and powdery silver blue fan-shaped fronds. Keep in mind that these very large trees have root systems to match so, to prevent cracking of cement, plant them 8 to 10 feet away.
