Tallahassee’s location in Leon County places it in USDA Zone 8b, but straddles the boundary of Zone 9A. It’s an excellent area for growing many varieties of palm trees, but it’s crucial to know which palms will withstand the coldest weather in your area.
While Tallahassee has a humid subtropical climate with short, mild winters and long warm summers, it has been known to get as low as 20°F in winter. As a matter of fact, in 1899 the temperature reached -2°F in Tallahassee, the only recorded sub-zero reading in Florida!
Palmco grows many varieties of cold-hardy palms that are perfect for the Tallahassee area as well as nearby Havana, Monticello, Quincy, Crawfordville and Capitola, including:
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 feet tall and 10 feet wide. Pindo can tolerate cold down to 5°F when mature. It grows well in USDA Zones 7b to 11 and likes partial to full sun.
At the end of spring, the Pindo produces small yellow to orange-red flowers that grow in clusters. The flowers are followed by bright orange fruits, also known as “pindo dates,” that are edible and reach their maturity in the summer. The fruits can be eaten fresh or used to make jams or wine. You can also use them to make jelly, which is where the plant gets the name Jelly Palm.
Also known as the Cabbage Palm, the Sabal Palmetto is Florida’s state tree and is probably the best known of Florida’s 11 native palms. It grows in almost any type of soil as well as in frosts and freezes.
Sabal palms have a slow growth rate and can reach heights of 60 feet, although most remain in the 20 – 40 feet range. As a native plant, the Sabal palm is well suited to Florida landscapes. Once established, it is drought tolerant, but also can adapt to wet soil conditions. It also adapts to low-fertility, sandy soils and enjoys a sunny moist area where it can get watered regularly. It’s very saltwater tolerant and is often found growing along the sea coast.
This fast-growing beauty, also called the Mexican Fan Palm, is a great choice when you need a finished look fast. If you have plenty of room, this palm can reach heights of 70 to 100 feet, and is ideal for street planting or large open areas.
They are also very cold-hardy and will grow anywhere in Florida and even in southern parts of Texas and South Carolina. Watering on a regular basis with time to dry out between waterings will keep this palm looking its best. Each Washingtonia palm grows at its own rate though, so don’t plan for a symmetrical landscape design with several of them.
