Product Description

The King Of Tropical Landscaping

Royal palms are the tallest of all palms!

Palm City Nursery and Landscaping, is a grower of field grown materials on Pine Island, in Southwest Florida.

Their dignified appearance will elevate landscaping projects.

They are one of the few palms whose origin can be traced back to Cuba and Florida. Many palms acclimate well to areas like; Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Bonita Springs and Naples but most don’t grow as tall.

Under ideal conditions Royal palms can reach staggering heights of 50ft – 70ft!

We can help you encourage these maximum heights with consistent irrigation and fertilization. If your looking for a palm that is stunning but not as tall, you may want to consider a Foxtail Palm or a Queen Palm.

Care and Maintenance

  • Self cleaning
  • Full sunlight exposure of 8 hours daily
  • Supplemental irrigation
  • Quality fertilizer
  • Avoid transplanting
  • Procure a healthy specimen before installation

Customers should be aware that Royal palms grow so large that they’re not a fit for all landscaping projects.

An experienced landscape architect or local landscaping professional will take the time to consult with you regarding the ideal application for your project. If you are not working with either of these professionals, our team is experienced and can help you.

Optimal Applications Include

  • Resorts
  • High end homes
  • Gated communities
  • Shopping centers
  • Lining streets
  • Providing a barrier along property lines

Royal palms are considered to be a self-cleaning palm. However it is important to note that their fronds are large and heavy.

Professional maintenance companies can help remove the fronds before they shed on their own.

Hurricane season is no match for Royal palms.

They have evolved in Florida and the Caribbean and are able to withstand the intense winds associated with this intense forces of Mother Nature.

They are acclimated to zones 10-11.

Therefor, they should only be used in these areas as temperatures lower than 30 degrees Fahrenheit can damage Royal palms.

Luckily, in Southwest Florida, we rarely experience temperatures lower than 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
