One of our top five palms is the Areca palm. It’s generally chosen as a screen against wind and prying eyes on both business and private property. These trees have a wide canopy and a moderate height. Planting should be within Zone 10 although they can survive in Zone 9b if planted near a water source to enhance the humidity within the warm environment.
Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape nurtures and sells both container and field-planted Areca palm trees. They grow at moderate rates and thrive even during our Florida dry season.
This shorter variety, the Adonidia Palm, is also called the Christmas Palm. The name derives from the white blossoms and red berries displayed during winter months upon the tree’s maturation.
Here at Beltran’s, we offer these trees individually or as part of a group. When cared for appropriately, these trees grow to heights of 25 feet and provide a healthy dose of tropical majesty for landscaping purposes.
The Foxtail Palm has a dense, thick canopy and is well known for copper-colored scars left behind following leaf fall. Freezing temperatures can damage these trees, so make sure that they’re planted in an appropriate location.
Silver Bismarckia Palms
The distinct color and fan shape of the foliage on the Silver Bismarckia Palm mark it as a point of interest for any landscape. Upon maturity, it can grow anywhere between 30 and 50 feet, so plant it away from buildings to leave ample space for the large root ball and expansive canopy that will surely grow.
Pygmy Date Palms
These small palm trees max out at around 10 feet. Because they grow slowly and are relatively small, they’re considered the best palm to fill smaller gaps, and you can purchase them as single-trunk or multi-trunk specimens. These hardy plants will withstand cold temperatures well and add substantial interest to your landscape.
