Palm Species

The King Palm (Archontophoenix Cunninghamiana) is a quick growing palm. It loves rich soil, lots of nutrition and ample water. A 15 -gallon plant can grow up to 25 feet in about 10 years. In partial sun, they seem to grow faster due to competition for the sun. These are good canopy-forming trees. Maximum height is about 40 feet.
   
Queen Palm (Arecastrum Romanzoffianum) is a palm native to South America. It is a medium-sized palm, growing to 40-50 feet tall, with pinnate leaves.
   
Phoenix Roebelenii (Pygmy Date Palm) is a small, slow-growing slender tree growing to 7 feet tall. The leaflets are 24-50 inches long, pinnate with around 100 leaflets arranged in a single plane.
   
King Sago Palm (Cycas Revoluta), This very symmetrical plant supports a crown of shiny; dark green leaves on a thick shaggy trunk that is typically abut 8 inches in diameter, sometimes wider. The trunk is very low to subterranean in young plants, but lengthens above ground with age. The leaves are deep semi-glossy green and about 18-45 inches long when the plants are of reproductive age. They grow out into a feather-like rosette to 3 feet in diameter. The crowded, stiff, narrow leaflets are approximately 7 inches long and have strong curved edges.
   
Giant Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Nicolai) has erect woody, palm like stems reaching a height of 20 feet and the clumps formed can spread as far as 12 feet. The 6 foot long leaves are grey-green and arrange like a fan at the top of the stems. The inflorescence is composed of a dark blue bract, white sepals and a bluish-purple “tongue”. The entire flower can be as large as 7 inches high by 18 inches long and is typically held just above the point where the leaf fan emerges from the stem. Flowers are followed by triangular seed capsules.
   
Kentia palm (Howea Forsteriana) is endemic to Lord Howe Island. Its leaves grow up to 8 feet long. The palm is an elegant plant and is popular for growing indoors, requiring little light. Outdoors, it prefers a tropical region but will also grow in a cooler climate. It is slow growing but eventually will reach heights of 40-50 feet.
   
Majesty Palm (Ravenea Rivularis) This is a beautiful feather-leafed palm whose symmetrical form & smooth-flared trunk combine to create a living sculpture for your landscape. This palm will grow to about 40ft.
   
The Foxtail palm (Wodyetia Bifurcata) is a very attractive palm with long 6-10 foot plumose leaves (hence the name “Foxtail”), and up to 35 feet tall of trunk. It produces large orange fruit.
   
The Triangle Palm (Neodypsis Decaryi) is native to the Madagascan rainforest. The leaves are about 6 feet in length, arching almost upright from the trunk and then arching gracefully, about a meter from the tip. The palm is a great ornamental plant and should be grown out in the open to show its unique shape. It prefers full sun and regular watering, although can handle occasional dryness and part shade. If given the choice it prefers sandy soil. It is a fast grower once established and its seed normally germinates within a month of being planted.
   
The Mediterranean Fan Palm (Chamaerops Humilis) is native to the western Mediterranean region, southwestern Europe & northwest Africa. It is a shrub-like clumping palm with several stems growing from a single base. The stems grow slowly and often tightly together, eventually reaching 6-10 feet tall.
   
The Fishtail (Caryota Urens) often know for that name because of the shape of their leaves. They grow to approximately 50-60 feet in height. These palms have a grey trunk with graceful, arching bipinnate leaves.
