Canary Island Date Palm Pictures
(Phoenix canariensis)

This large, stately palm often reaches a size too massive for most residential landscapes but, fortunately, it is very slow-growing and will take a considerable amount of time to reach its 50 to 60-foot- height. Massive and imposing, the Canary Island Date Palm is the center of attention wherever it is planted.

Mediterranean (European) Fan Palm Pictures
(Chamaerops humilis)

This slow grower is one of the most cold-hardy of all palms. The distinctive fan-shaped fronds are composed of stiff, blue-green to gray-green leaflets. These eventually form a compact head at the end of each curved stem. The suckering habit eventually results in pleasing stem groupings and much landscape interest. This small palm tree makes a striking accent plant against architectural features. It is one of the best species for containers as well as for massing at the base of taller growing palms.

Windmill Palm Tree which is one of the cold hardiest Palms


Windmill Palm Tree Pictures
(Trachycarpus fortunei)

The Windmill Palm tree has been extensively planted and grown during the last five years in most Northern States and in Canada in defiance to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones. www.ScanPalm.no reports based on years of research - "Older and more established individuals of Trachycarpus fortunei can manage temperatures down to -13C, but then with some damage on the leafs. If the temperature goes down to -17C (0 degrees to Americans), the leafs will suffer badly. But the situation's final outcome depends on numerous factors like the length of the cold period, humidity, and wind."

A crown of gray-green fronds strongly recurved, create a graceful cascading effect for this feather palm. The stocky trunk becomes patterned with the stubs of old leaf bases. Females bear large clusters of edible fruits with a pineapple-like flavor. The Pindo Palm is excellent as a low, bushy specimen for containers, tubs or gardens. It is attractive when interplanted among tall, slender palms.

Sago Palm showing its attractive dark green foliage


Sago Palm Pictures
(Cycas revoluta)

The Sago Palm is a compact plant and not a true palm, but a cycad. The shiny, dark-green foliage consists of numerous feathery leaves arranged in a flat spiral at the top of the heavy black trunk. The plant is slow-growing, producing new leaves only once a year. The Sago Palm makes an excellent tub or planter subject. It is effective when combined with other tropical and subtropical plants. Small Sago Palms are sometimes used under tall trees in place of ferns.

Mexican Fan Palm in prisitne condition


Mexican Fan Palm Pictures
(Washingtonia robusta)

The Mexican Fan Palm is a tall, graceful fast-growing palm. Bright green, fan-shaped leaves form a luxuriant but more compact head than California Fan Palm. The trunk flares at the base but tapers into a slender column above. The dry leaf thatch is not so uniform or attractive as that of the California Fan Palm. It may be removed or allowed to hang naturally, and oftenbreaks loose. This species hybridizes easily with W. filifera, so that a large variation in appearance is possible.
