AVAILABLE PALM TREES

THE PALMS AND PALMETTO LISTED BELOW ARE ALL AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION,  MOST PALMS ARE PRICED BY THE ROOT BALL SIZE ( GALLON )  WHILE  SPECIMEN PALMS ARE PRICED PER FOOT OF TRUNK.  LET US KNOW WHAT YOU LIKE AND WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO FIND THE PERFECT PALMS AND THE PERFECT LOCATION  FOR THEM ON YOUR PROPERTY.


   WASHINGTONIA PALM -

For people who want only the most cold-tolerant of plants, the Washingtonia ( or Mexican Fan palm) is your palm.These are the some of the most cold hardy of all South Florida palms.

Washingtonias grow fast - yet the rate can vary from palm to palm. No two grow at the same pace, so pairs of these palms are not a good choice for symmetrical landscape design.They can eventually grow up to 100 feet with average growth at 2-3 feet per year.Very cold hardy, "washies" will grow anywhere in Florida. These palms are moderately salt-tolerant and moderately drought-tolerant once established. They do best with regular waterings, allowed to dry out in between.


ROEBELLINI ( PYGMY DATE PALM ) -

This beautiful, easy-care palm works almost anywhere as an accent plant for any size yard, or even close to the house or by the pool. Naturally a solitary-trunk palm, it's most often seen with two, three or even four palms planted together to make a multi-trunk specimen.

Slow-growing to an ultimate height of about 12 feet, this palm is generally cold hardy to Zone 9B spot.If winter brings very cold winds, the pygmy may show leaf-tip burn.

It takes full sun to partial shade, making it easy to find a great planting location.


MEDJOOL PALM -  name Phoenix dactylifera, is a close relative to Canary Date Palm (Phoenix canariensis) and Pygmy Date Palm (Phoenix roebelenii). This is a cold hardy palm that can tolerate cold temperatures down to 15F and will grow well in zone 8. This palm tree can also withstand large temperature fluctuations. Phoenix dactylifera is very easy to grow and maintain. Thier growth rate is moderate. Phoenix dactylifera can grow up to 40 – 50 ft with a spread up to 10-15 ft wide.

   These specimen trees are typically priced by the foot based on the overall height of the trunk


   QUEEN PALM -

This palm has a smooth straight gray trunk ringed with evenly spaced leaf scars and topped with a large canopy of feathery fronds. The fronds are dark green and have double rows of leaflets. This palm is noted for its spectacular clusters of flowers and fruits. The flower clusters burst from large pods during the summer. In early winter, the green fruit clusters appear.

This stately, single-trunked palm is crowned by a beautiful head of glossy, bright green, soft, pinnate leaves forming a graceful, drooping canopy. The ornamental, bright orange dates are produced in hanging clusters and ripen during the winter months. The dead fronds are persistent and often require pruning to remove. It is popular in commercial or home landscapes planted in rows on 15-foot centers to line a street or walk, in clusters or occasionally as a specimen. The grey trunk is ringed with old leaf scars.


SAW PALMETTO -

Saw palmettos are native to Florida and the southeastern United States.Perfect as a filler,  backdrop or accent.The "saw" in the plant's name refers to the saw-like teeth on the leaf stems. Since a palmetto plant rarely needs pruning, you won't come in contact often.

Palmettos can handle full sun to complete shade, growing slowly to a typical height of 3 to 6 feet.Grow in any Florida zone - it can take the cold.This plant will spread out, though it takes many years for one to cover a large area. It grows thick and dense, with no visible trunk since the base of the plant remains close to the ground.


   MAJESTY PALM -

Perhaps the finest houseplant palm with rich green fronds. This palm makes an excellent indoor or outdoor palm addition but requires more water than other palms. Certain varieties will grow upwards of 50 feet but most available specimens are in the 10-15 foot range.


   LADYFINGER ( LADY )  PALM  -

A graceful palm for garden areas that allow it room to spread out, this palm grows multiple thin trunks topped with fronds like little green umbrellas.The fronds above are slightly offset from lower ones, so many are visible at the same time to create a lush, layered look.The lady grows slowly to an ultimate height of about 8 to 10 feet. Sun or shade is fine, though in a shady spot, the fronds keep their best deep green color.

Lady palms are moderately cold tolerant - best when grown in Zone 10 or in Zone 9B in a protected area. If your palm suffers any winter damage on existing trunks, new ones will usually appear to replace them (although it takes a while).


   BOTTLE PALM -

Though it can be cold-sensitive, this palm is an outstanding accent palm for tropical garden beds. Its small size and striking appearance enhance any landscape.The fronds are few but long and graceful. Most often seen as a single specimens, bottle palms are also available in  eye-catching multi-trunk specimens, usually with 2 or 3 trunks.

Bottles are slow growing palms that could end up about 10 feet at maturity...but maturity takes many, many years. Most specimens in the landscape average only 5 to 7 feet tall. Cold is a very real threat, so growing in Zone 10B - especially in warmer coastal areas - is fine for normal winter temperatures.

Bottles are drought-tolerant and like full to part sun locations. They can be used in partial shade as well, but if there's too much shade the crownshaft will grow elongated and lean toward the light - turning unique into just plain ugly.


   ARECA PALM -

The soft, fine-textured fronds of a "Butterfly Palm" ,as it's sometimes called, are full and dense. This makes it a favorite for privacy, accents and garden backdrops in many Florida home landscapes. You can leave the palm fluffy and full to the ground, or thin it out to see more of the trunks. Either way, this palm makes a great addition to most landscaping as long as it's well placed for its ultimate size.

Areca palms are slow to moderate growers for sun or shade and can reach heights of 15 to 20 feet.


   ADONIDIA ( CHRISTMAS PALM ) -

The adonidia is easy to care for. It's self-cleaning, meaning the spent fronds just fall off by themselves, a big low-maintenance plus.

Why is it called "Christmas Palm?"As it matures, the adonidia will bloom with white flowers and then red berries (seeds) around Christmas time. It looks like a miniature royal palm, with its green crown shaft, gray trunk and long full fronds. Single trunk specimens work almost anywhere since they won't grow too large or too fast to overwhelm most locations.

Christmas palms make good focal points in small tropical gardens and, when taller and more mature, they can become an elegant statement palm.

Growing slowly to an average height of 12 to 15 feet, a recent concern for this palm has been cold weather since the record setting cold temperatures of the 2009 -10 Florida winter.


   EUROPEAN FAN PALM -

The "Mediterranean Fan Palm," as it's often called, is a multi-trunk palm yet it stays very compact and won't outgrow a small area. The color of this palm is usually green with a silvery cast, though no two European fans are exactly alike in color or shape.

Because of the sharp teeth or "spines" lining each stem, the European fan is best placed a safe distance from heavy foot traffic.

European fan palms are very slow-growing to a maximum height of about 8 to 10 feet. They can thrive in full sun to full shade, with fronds growing a bit larger in shadier areas.






AVAILABLE TREES

TREES COME IN ALL DIFFERENT SHAPES, SIZES, AND COLORS. SOME ARE PLANTED FOR DESIGN WHILE OTHERS ARE PLANTED SIMPLY FOR SHADE. WHATEVER THE REASON, ITS IMPORTANT TO FIND THE RIGHT TREE . LET US KNOW WHAT YOU ARE HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO ASSIST YOU IN MAKING THE BEST DECISION FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS, AND REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC VARIETY AND DON'T SEE IT LISTED JUST LET US KNOW....WE WILL FIND IT FOR YOU.





   CRAPE MYRTLE -

Flower colors range from white to reds and pinks of all shades and even purple. It's a good idea to buy when the plants are in bloom to be sure the color is the one you want.

These are fast-growing plants that need a sunny, well-drained area to thrive.Crape myrtles are cold hardy - anywhere throughout Zone 9 or 10 is fine - but they are deciduous, with some varieties putting on a show of fall color before losing their leaves.

Flowers begin to appear in late spring to early summer, depending on variety.

After the flower begins to die, heavy clusters of seed pods form, causing each branch to droop and the plant to have a weeping appearance. The pods remain on the plant even after it loses its leaves.You can prune a crape myrtle tree in spring - late March at the earliest - but don't get carried away...too heavy a pruning (often called "crape murder") results in weakened new shoots and ugly dead ends on branches. 


   WAX MYRTLE -

The dense, fine-textured foliage can be nicely manicured to create a more formal look, or let the plant grow into its natural upright, bushy form.  Commonly used as a hedge or privacy screen, this fast-growing shrub can also be grown as a tree. It's also often planted along the edge of a pond

This is an evergreen shrub that's cold hardy enough to grow beautifully anywhere in South Florida. It's a fast grower that can be trimmed to 5 or 6 feet tall and wide, or left to grow much larger - 20 feet or more. Avoid placing in windy locations...fast growers like these tend to have more brittle wood stems.

These plants prefer full to partial sun to look their best.


  RED CEDAR -

The eastern redcedar tree is a common sight throughout most of the eastern United States on road cuts, in fence rows and scattered across abandoned fields—especially where limestone soils are present.

Thanks to its tolerance of heat, salt, a wide range of soils and other adverse conditions, the eastern redcedar can be put to good use on the farm in windbreaks and in city landscapes for hedges, screens, clumps or even as specimen trees.This is an evergreen tree, keeping its foliage year-round. The eastern redcedar grows to a height of 40–50' and a spread of 8–20' at maturity. This tree grows at a medium rate, with height increases of 13–24" per year. Full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.


  LIGUSTROM -

This plant can grow 15 feet or more with a nice, natural shape. You can also keep it sheared into a smaller "bonsai" form of about 8 to 10 feet.  A naturally multi-trunk tree with deep green, shiny leaves and white spring flowers, the all-green shrub is one the most popular choices for an easy-care small yard tree. 
When kept manicured, it's outstanding in formal landscapes or Oriental gardens. Left to grow naturally, it works well as a small shade tree with a casual look for any landscaping style.

You can buy a green ligustrum already trained as a standard - or plant a small shrub and trim it yourself into a multi-trunk tree.


  NELLIE STEVENS HOLLY -

Holly is the common name for a large group of trees and shrubs that may be either evergreen or deciduous, though many of the most well-known varieties are evergreen. Hardiness varies among different holly trees, and different species are available for most climates in the United States. Holly trees are closely associated with the Christmas season, and their spiky leaves and bright red berries make them prominent landscape plants, particularly in winter.Ideal growing conditions for holly trees include full sunlight exposure and moist but well-drained soil. They will also tolerate light shade. 


  SOUTHERN LIVE OAK -

No plant has quite the "presence" of this magnificent tree. It can survive for centuries. It provides shelter and food for birds and squirrels. It even adds monetary value to your home.

A single live oak can add up to $30,000 value to a property, according to University of Florida botanist Francis Putz. He also states having one planted near a house can help save it from hurricane damage by acting as a windbreak. These trees are very wind-resistant, even during hurricanes.

These oaks are some of the most commonly planted large shade trees in Florida. One live oak tree can grow a broad-spreading canopy of arching, horizontal branches that can cover half a football field - including the sidelines and some of the stands.Beautiful at every stage of its long life, a live oak's silvery gray branches on young trees mature to unbelievably long, thick ones from an immense trunk. 

But young trees are much less messy than older ones - and the work involved is really a small price to pay for the shade, character, landscape beauty and value, not to mention the protection from winds that oaks provide.

These trees support more than just wildlife...they also are home to epiphytes (air plants) besides Spanish moss - things like night-blooming cereus and staghorn fern.


  MAGNOLIA DD BLANCHARD -

The magnolia flowers are white, contrasting beautifully against the large, stiff, glossy-green leaves. The blooms can be as large as 8 inches across, with a lemony perfume said to be nature's strongest sweet scent.

This  tree makes a classy specimen or accent tree for larger landscapes, or as a single specimen for medium-sized yards. It's too large for small houses and small landscapes. It works equally well with very manicured landscaping or among more casual touches like ornamental grasses and tropical philodendrons to create an eclectic design.

Evergreen and cold hardy anywhere in Florida, this magnolia can grow to 40 feet. It does best in a full to part sun location.

This is a slow grower that has an upright growth habit - an oval form rather than a wide-spreading canopy - so you can safely plant things around the tree that prefer sun.

This tree blooms most heavily in spring, then on and off during summer and early fall.
