Types of palms

 

SABAL PALM (Sabal palmetto)

Sabal palms can be used in a wide variety of landscape styles designed with your input and help to create a unique presentation.

DESCRIPTION

The Sabal Palm, botanical name Sabal palmetto, is a medium sized palm tree with big green leaves that form a dense globular crown. Native to the Southeastern US and West Bahamas, it can tolerate salt spray, so it’s an ideal palm tree for use in coastal areas and beachside planting.  Its majestic look makes it an ideal candidate for bringing a tropical splash to your landscape.

Drought tolerant, the Sabal Palm is cold hardy and loves full sun. It’s a slow growing fan palm that requires low to moderate water once established.  Bring an instant tropical look and feel to your landscape.  Some choose to have the trunks skinned for a unique “cigar cut” effect that creates a more formal appearance.  If you desire this “cigar cut” look, we can do it like no one else!

 For an attractive palm, install night time landscape lighting to light from behind or below, or use direct floodlights to silhouette it against light-colored walls.

We can do all the work – from the design to delivery, installation, maintenance, bi-monthly pruning and fertilization.

The super slow growing Sabal palm is very widely used due to its extreme hardiness, availability, and beauty when pruned properly. It really is hard to beat the silhouetted beauty and character of a Sabal Palm.  These trees bring out the true charm of the South.

The Sabal palm requires a lot of water especially upon transplanting. The Sabal palm has the ability to draw all the water it needs in through its trunk. Once planted, if there is not regular rainfall, the trunks need to be wet down daily until established. Due to these challenges, Sabals are normally sold with the fronds cut close to the crown of the trunk to help them through the transplant process.

The Sabal palm is very cold hardy and can be grown farther North than most other palms. This Palm has High Wind Resistance which makes them great for hurricane prone areas. The Sabal palm has a slow growth rate but can grow up to 40 feet tall.

Sabal Palms are tough. The trunks are heavy and the canopies dark green.  Sabals are a large, robust palm that is a very slow grower reaching as large as 40 feet or so over its nearly 100 year plus life span. The crown is of medium size being 12-14 feet across at maturity. Like many palms the crown is typically wider when grown in shade and more compact when grown in full sun.  

The large fronds are a medium green in color and the canopies will become fairly thick when the palms are grown in full sun. In mid-summer the cabbage palm bears creamy white flowers on a long branched inflorescence that we prune off. 

STATS

Common Name: Cabbage Palm
Scientific Name: Sabal Palmetto
Zone: 7B-11
Growth Rate: Slow
Origin: Southeast Asia
Salt Tolerance: High
Drought Tolerance: High
Typical Height: 40' on average

Location
This southeastern U.S. native palm occurs near the coast, from the North Carolina barrier islands to South Carolina, Georgia, down to the Florida Keys and then up the Gulf Coast to the northwestern Florida panhandle.

Culture
Sabal palmetto is very salt and drought tolerant and can be used in beachside plantings. It is able to adapt to most types of soil.  All of the roots are cut back as well (cut sabal roots die back anyway and new ones grow directly from the trunk).  Regens are freshly dug palms that have been harvested and then planted & nurtured over a 12 month period to regenerate the root systems and canopies before being sold. 

Light
Full sunlight to some shade. Trunk development is suppressed in heavily shaded specimens.

Moisture
Super versatile and very adaptable. After establishment, Sabals tolerate drought, standing water and brackish water.

Hardiness
USDA Zones 8-10. This is a cold hardy palm that survives hard freezes to 15 degrees with no issues. 

Usage
Our Sabals are available with straight trunks that are “clear” (Thatch removed leaving a smooth trunk appearance). Sabals are also available with unique curves and character. Where used in dense roadway plantings absorb the road noise. The Sable Palmetto is drought and salt resistant making. 

Maintenance

All Palms can be messy if not regularly pruned.  We will personally present all the pruning options, as well as providing continuing maintenance program for their proper care and maintaining their beauty.  Our follow up maintenance program consists of pruning, fertilizing, mulching, and application of our proprietary trunk-strengthening, organic, bug-resistant coating. 

FEATURES

WINDMILL PALM (Trachycarpus fortunei)

Small to medium size palm with excellent tropical appeal. One of the most cold hardy palms available in the market.  Can be messy if not regularly pruned.

 

DESCRIPTION

The Windmill Palm, botanical name Trachycarpus fortunei, is a very cold hardy, small to medium sized fan palm that is noted for its tropical, resort-style looks.

A moderate to fast grower. It thrives in full sun or light shade and requires low to moderate water use once established. Its dark green foliage adds a dramatic and somewhat formal look to any environment. Windmill Palms offer year-round interest, with their unique and slender trunks and dark green fronds adding a natural, tropical feel to just about any landscape.

Buy as big as you can to create an instant tropical landscape. Resort Style Palms partners grow and nurtures the finest quality Windmill Palms ready to adorn your landscape with beauty and elegance. Create nighttime drama in your landscape and set the “wow” factor on high with nighttime landscape lighting. Light from behind or below or use direct floodlights to silhouette it against light-colored walls.  Plan and design your dream landscape right!

Windmill palms are commonly grown as single trunk palms.  Windmill Palms are a great choice for planting under taller Palms like Sable Palmetto and Washingtonia or in areas with height restrictions.
 

Windmill palms absolutely thrive in intensely hot or dry locations and require minimal water compared to other palm trees. If you want the effect of a larger palm tree without the maintenance or watering requirements, this is your ideal solution!

Windmill Palms are great planted under other, taller Palms. Resort Style Palm Trees are always worth the investment! 

The Windmill Palm is one of the most cold hardy palms. It can withstand temperatures reaching 5 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Windmill palm can reach heights up to 25 feet tall but most top out at 15 feet with a frond spread up to 10 feet. This palm is a moderate grower. The Windmill palm only grows approximately 1 foot a year. When planting the Windmill palm either around a patio or sitting area they should be spaced at least 12 to 15 feet apart.

 

The Windmill Palm is used in resorts and luxury homes throughout the tropical world.

 

To encourage strong growth, the Windmill palm’s soil must be well drained. If the soil gets waterlogged from excessive watering, the roots may succumb to root rot, which invites pests and disease. That being said, extreme dry soil stunts the growth of the Windmill palm.

 

Wind issues that may affect Windmill Palm are as follows: Although the Windmill has a sturdy trunk, it is susceptible to wind damage if located in a gusty area. The Windmill palm would do well in a shaded or partially shaded area with some protection from direct wind.

 

Windmill palm is beautifully compact and grows to heights of 8-25 ft.  Trunks are usually covered with a loose mat of coarse gray or brown fiber.

Washingtonia Fan Palms are an impressive addition to any landscape

Stately and distinctive, the washingtonia fan palm is one of the most widely grown palms in subtropical climates. Washingtonia Fan palm can grow 40 ft (18.3 m) tall with a crown spread of 15 ft (4.6 m). The massive gray trunk is barrel shaped and ringed with old leaf scars, and may reach over 3 ft (0.9 m) in diameter at its widest point. Fan palm can have up to thirty gray-green palmate (fan-shaped) leaves, each 3-6 ft (0.9-1.8 m) across. They spread out to form a loose and open crown. The petioles (leaf stems) of mature palms are armed along the margins with curved thorns.

STATS 

Common Name: Washingtonia Fan Palm
Scientific Name: Washingtonia Robusta
Zone: 9A-11
Growth Rate: Fast
Origin: Mexico
Salt Tolerance: Moderate
Drought Tolerance: High
Typical Height: 40'-50'

Culture
This widely grown palm thrives in a wide range of soils and climates.  The vigorous and robust fan palm is considered very disease and pest resistant.  As with other palms, potassium, boron and magnesium deficiencies may occur in fan palms and mineral supplements should be administered in recommended amounts to prevent or treat such deficiencies.

Light
Fan palm thrives in exposure to full sun. It also grows well in part sun/shade.

Moisture
Once established, fan palm is drought tolerant, but it benefits greatly with regular watering. For optimal growth, soil should be moist with good drainage.

Hardiness
USDA Zones 8A - 11. Established fan palms can withstand frosts and freezes. Reports of cold hardiness for the fan palm indicate the tree withstands 15 to 20ºF with only minor foliage damage.  Mature and established plants have survived -11º F, but such very low temperatures can be expected to cause major and significant foliage damage. Palms in fast-draining soil are more cold hardy. During the winter, leaves may become temporarily discolored by damp cold and frost.  Fan palms can withstand extreme heat, too, including temperatures up to 127ºF.

Features
The fan palm has numerous fine attributes including cold hardiness, fast growth and drought and salt resistance. This palm adapts to most soils, and is very hardy. The genus was named in honor of George Washington. The species name, filifera, comes from both Latin and Greek words meaning thread-bearing.

Maintenance

All Palms can be messy if not regularly pruned.  We will personally present all the pruning options, as well as providing continuing maintenance program for their proper care and maintaining their beauty.  Our follow up maintenance program consists of pruning, fertilizing, mulching, and application of our proprietary trunk-strengthening, organic, bug-resistant coating.

MEDITERRANEAN FAN PALM  (Chamaerops humilis)

Mediterranean Palms are great to plant under taller palms like Sabal Palmettos and Washingtonia.  Mediterranean Palms are ideal for use where a degree of tropical diversity is sought. Mediterranean palms are cold tolerant to at least zone 8B and are available as single trunked specimens or in a variety of incredibly beautiful multi stemmed specimens. Smaller Mederiterranean Palms are terrific for use as an accent on site and mature specimens are individually unique masterpieces that will anchor the landscape while instilling a "one of a kind" perspective on site.   Cold tolerant, beautiful and often totally unique; this palm is stunning to behold and is a safe landscape investment.

Known for its extreme hardiness, the slow growing, rugged Mediterranean Fan Palm has become popularly known for its wide adaptability to different environmental conditions.

This cold-hardy palm is noted for being widely adaptable to a broad range of soil conditions assuming that they are well drained.

Being a hardier palm it can actually tolerate frost conditions down to 10°F. As long as these conditions are limited and do not persist this palm will survive.

In nursery stock it is very difficult to locate any two of these palms that are exactly alike.

Normally preferring full sun conditions, this palm can also do well in partially sunlit areas. The Mediterranean Fan palm is a super slow grower. Its’ max height of 10 feet will take a good amount of time to reach. It can take us over 10-15 years to reach the height of 7 feet.

The growth will be steadier when the extreme temperatures are minimized. Extreme heat and extreme cold will slow the growth of this already slow growing palm.

PINDO PALM     (Butia capitata)             

This beautiful silvery/blue feather palm has long pinnate leaves that arch and re-curve towards the ground from atop a thick stout trunk. The trunk can grow as tall as 20 feet but is rarely seen larger than 14 feet. Pindos are relatively slow growing palms and they are exceptionally cold tolerant and are well suited to use even up in Zone 8. Pindos that Resort Style Palms cares for will develop full, lush canopies and are undaunted by freezes into the low 20's / high teens and will survive a freeze event into the low teens with just minor damage.

Interesting palm, easily recognized by its Diamond cut trunk & striking silver-green, graceful arching fronds.

DESCRIPTION

The Pindo Palm, botanical name Butia capitate, is a medium evergreen palm tree that is perfectly suited for luxury homes and resorts. Easily recognized by its striking silver-green, graceful arching fronds and Diamond cut, the Pindo Palm will fit in perfectly with contemporary, Mediterranean and tropical resort landscape styles. It is a cold-hardy, drought tolerant palm that thrives in full to partial sun environments.

This Pindo Palm has a slow growth rate and will require low to moderate watering needs once established. Due to its slow growth rate, buy bigger palms. We have these beauties available in a variety of medium to large sizes.  Some choose to have the trunks skinned for a unique “diamond cut” effect that creates a more formal appearance.  If you desire this “diamond cut” look, we can do it like no one else!

Dramatic foliage colors are sure to please the senses, no matter where you plant this Pindo palm tree. In the summer, it blooms beautiful yellow to reddish flowers.

Highlight the beautiful features of this Pindo Palm with landscape lighting to display the graceful arching fronds and dramatic foliage!

Pindo Palms are easily spotted because of their unique silver or blue-grey color. 

Next to the Windmill and the European Fan, the Pindo palm is one of the cold hardy palms currently in production at our partner nurseries and farms for landscape purposes today. The Pindo palm can tolerate temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit and is wind resistant.

We also carry a select variety of non-Palm tree species listed below for purchase planting and upkeep.

 

The Crepe Myrtle

The Crepe Myrtle, often referred to as ‘the pride of the south’, is just about the most widely used, tried and true colorful tree in the South. There are good reasons why this tree is so popular: it grows to an ideal height, the canopy establishes very quickly and evenly, and the bloom cycles are exceptionally long. Crepe Myrtles are known to show their beautiful red-pink flowers from early spring all the way into the fall. 

A strictly ornamental tree, the Crepe Myrtle love the hot sun and grow great in the South’s climate and sandy-type soil. Plant Crepe Myrtles wherever you’re looking for an intense and vibrant splash of color.

 

Live Oaks

Live Oaks are evergreen oaks that remain green and "live" throughout winters.  Having a distinct beautiful look that is engrained in the South, Live Oaks' lower limbs often sweep down towards the ground before curving up again.  They also support other plant species that are iconic to Live Oaks such as the Spanish moss which can be found draping gracefully from the branches.

 

Magnolias

Best known for their magnificent fragrance from their flowers that rivals rose flowers, Magnolias are another iconic tree of the South.  Magnolias are gorgeous and fragrant trees which bring beauty and tranquility to any landscape.
