Unique Palm Trees for USDA Zone 9B
There are about 2,600 known palm tree species in the world, and few types of plants offer so much beauty and appeal. Small palms with attractive trunks and fluffy, full-to-the-ground palms make beautiful backdrops. Large palms, whether majestic or slim and willowy, make striking silhouettes in any environment.
You can find traditional palms anywhere, but you’ll get plenty of compliments on these unique palm trees that are known to thrive in Zone 9b:
Caranday Palm: Caranday (Copernicia alba; aka Wax Palm) is not well known in cultivation and considered rare but is growing in popularity. It has unique costapalmate leaves (a combination of palmate (fan) and pinnate (feather) leaves) that are blue-green or silver-green on the surface and light gray underneath. Caranday palms grow slowly to an average height of 30 feet and make a grand impression when planted in groups of two or three at staggered heights.
Lady Palm: If you are looking to add lush texture at ground level, especially in a partially shaded area, consider the bushy Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa). It actually needs shade in order to maintain its dark green fronds. The maximum height of this unique clumping palm is roughly 6 to 12 feet. Its trunk is similar in appearance to bamboo and will keep the old leaves as new leaves emerge, giving the palm leaves from top to bottom. These gorgeous small palms can also be grown indoors.
Ribbon Palm: When you need an unusual palm for a driveway or avenue planting or for shade by the pool, Livistona decora/dicipeins, also known as the Ribbon Fan Palm or Fountain Palm, will be an asset to your landscape. The canopy is dark green with long, ribbon-like leaves that hang toward the ground in an almost weeping appearance. This Australian native grows slowly to heights of about 30 feet, tolerates a wide range of soils, and is very insect and disease resistant.
