Palms originate from different places on Earth, so some varieties will tolerate cold temperatures better than others. When choosing a palm tree, be sure to choose a variety that will withstand your coldest weather.
Palm Trees in Zone 10a to 11
Fortunately, there are many varieties of palm trees that thrive in Florida, and some of the warmest USDA zones – 10a and 10b – are in South Florida.
Hollywood, like the rest of South Florida, has a Tropical monsoon climate, with humid summers and mild winters. However, there can be a rare frost, particularly in January, when temperatures have been known to dip to 28 degrees Fahrenheit.
Here are just a few of our palm varieties that grow beautifully in Broward County:
Adonidia Palm (Adonidia merrillii) – This versatile and attractive palm, also called the Christmas Palm and the Manila Palm, often has a single trunk, but may have a double or triple trunk. It grows moderately fast to a height of 10 to 20 feet, with gently arching bright green fronds that grow from the top of the crownshaft.
During the summer, it produces light green flower buds that become creamy blossoms and, in December, the flowers are followed by green fruits that turn bright red as they ripen.
Christmas Palms look very much like the popular Royal Palm but are much smaller and better suited to smaller homes. They have excellent wind resistance, moderate tolerance to salt, but can suffer death at 32°F.
Pindo Palm (Butia capitata) – Originating in the forests of Brazil, 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 to 20 feet tall and 10 feet wide. It’s also called the Jelly Palm due to its bright yellow fruit that can be made into a jelly.
The Pindo Palm likes a sunny, moist, and well-drained location.
It can take full sun from a very young age, but tends to grow taller in full shade and shade will make the fronds grow larger and "greener". This palm is very drought and cold tolerant, handling frosts and freezes without a problem.
Windmill Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) – The Windmill, also called Chinese Windmill Palm and the Chusan Palm, is one of the most cold-hardy palms, tolerating temperatures as low as 5°F. They have palmate fronds that grow upward. Each frond has about 30 deeply divided leaf segments ranging from yellow-green to dark green.
The fronds vibrate in the wind and look as though they are spinning… like a windmill.
This palm grows slowly at only about 1 foot per year. Although Windmills can reach 40 feet tall, most top out at 25 feet. It likes a sunny, moist and well drained area, and is stunning when planted in multiples. Windmill Palms will grow quickly if they get enough water, but shield them from the spray of saltwater.
Palmco’s farm is located on Pine Island, Florida, where we nurture every plant in our warm, fertile environment to produce only the strongest and healthiest palms and bamboos.
