Established in 1984 on beautiful Pine Island, Florida, Palmco has more than 600 acres planted with the finest FF (Florida Fancy) grade palms, ranging from the most common and plentiful varieties to the exotic and rare.
Short, warm winters and long, hot, humid summers classify Port Charlotte and most of Southwest Florida as having either a humid subtropical climate or a tropical savanna climate. The region is in USDA Hardiness Zone 10a, where temperatures rarely rise to 100 degrees Fahrenheit or dip below freezing.
USDA hardiness zones are based on local average low temperatures, so use them only as a guide. There are other factors to consider when growing palm trees, such as rainfall, soil, drainage, wind, humidity, daylight, and heat. Ask us about the varieties that will grow best in your location.
Growing Palms in Zone 10a
Make a stunning statement with one of the following palms for your residential development, resort hotel, golf course or avenue plantings in Port Charlotte:
Areca Palm – The dramatic Dypsis lutescens is a clustering palm, which means that many trunks spring up from the base of the plant. Also called the Feather Palm, it has fluffy, fine-textured dense fronds and a lush, full look. Arecas can reach heights of 15 to 20 feet, making them ideal when used as privacy screens, hedges and landscape backdrops. Its canopy can grow 8 to 10 feet in diameter, so give it enough room to grow properly. Palmco is a leading supplier of field-grown Arecas in a variety of sizes.
Caranday Palm or Caranday Wax Palm – This stunning and rather rare palm is fairly cold hardy and can withstand temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. It requires full to partial sun and grows to about 30 to 40 feet tall in cultivation. Two-foot round, palmate (fan-shaped) leaves grow from the top of the trunk and range from light green to light blue in color. In the fall, it also develops small white flowers that are followed by berry-looking fruits in summer. Plant them in groups of three at staggered heights for an impressive display.
Lady Palm – If you need a palm tree for a partially shaded area, the Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa) can handle it. In fact, it actually needs shade in order to maintain its dark green fronds. The maximum height of this clustering palm is roughly 6 to 12 feet, and it can also be grown indoors. It can also grow outside in summer and inside in winter without problems. The Lady Palm can withstand temperatures down into the low 20’s with minimal damage.
