Polk County is known for its many waterways, which make it a fertile growth spot for delightful palms. However, some palm trees grow best near water while others prefer not to get their feet wet.
Understanding which palms are best for your clientele and project is the key to success.
Great Palms for Polk County
The first thing to note when considering which palm trees are best for your area (and we have some that are cold hardy enough to grow in Canada!) is understanding which USDA growth zone your clients are in.
Polk County is located in Zone 9b, so selecting a tree that grows well in that zone is advisable.
Here are a few suggestions:
- Canary Palms:
This is a slow growing tree that can reach heights of 40 feet. Its crown shaft, when carefully and regularly manicured, resembles a pineapple, and the canopy it produces over head is certainly vast and memorable. These are great landscaping trees so long as they are planted in well-draining soil.
- Caranday Palm:
Originating in South America, these are considered rare trees that reach 30 feet in height. They are slow growers, but the colored leaves produce a wax that is utilized in lipstick, candles and some car polishes. In truth, even the trunk is renowned for its hardness and is often used for fences, floors and walls. Overall, this is a stunning tree that can make a great focal point by itself or in groups of 2-3.
- Chinese Fan Palm:
This tree is known for its fan shaped fronds and weeping look. Interestingly enough, the Chinese Fan Palm can also be found in Southern Japan. These are great for landscape design but can be a little temperamental in the transplant process, so please follow our expert directions carefully. They are typically single trunk trees but we’ve created multi-trunk varieties as well.
- European Fan Palm:
This is a shorter tree, only reaching an average of 10 feet tall. It is also a very hardy tree with multiple stems. The European fan palm is an incredibly slow growing palm known for its clumping proclivity, and it’s the only palm native to Europe. These palms work well in exotic designs and their clumping nature makes them quite eye-catching as a central focus.
- Lady Palm:
Unlike the others listed here, this palm works just as well indoors as it does outdoors. Even shorter than the European Fan Palm, the Lady Palm doesn’t typically exceed a height of 7 feet. They actually resemble a shrub and make great borders or privacy screening installations.
