Our Palm Trees

With over 4200 species of Palms, growing in rain forests, harsh deserts and cool mountain regions, the choices are diverse and varied.

Due to the "adventitious" root system , the root-ball of a Palm occupies a small area, making them ideal for landscaping in close proximity to structures, walkways and pools. They can even thrive in a decorative planter for many years.

Palms respond best to well-draining soils and should be fertilized 3-4 times annually.

Palms of the order "Principes", are the Princes of the plant kingdom.
