A Palm that is EASY to Grow and Maintain 

Gardeners Highly Prize this Unique Tree
The Bottle Palm sets itself apart because its trunk is shaped like an antique bottle of Caribbean rum, a standout silhouette that adds immediate value to gardens. As it matures, the palm tree becomes more and more bottle-shaped. Fronds depart, and the “bottle” gains shapely rings, You'll watch the Bottle Palm become more interesting and beautiful with age. The fully grown, stout “bottle” even becomes smooth, and like the Buddha's belly, it doesn't mind being rubbed for good luck! You’ll immediately benefit from an eye-catching tropical accent with a surprising array of features.

Now, the Garden is a Relaxing Oasis
The Bottle Palm only grows 4-6 fronds with arched, feather-shaped leaves. This small amount of fronds means that the palm won't compete for space— a great choice for busy garden beds. If you care well for your Bottle Palm by growing it in temperatures above freezing, with water and mulch, the no-nonsense plant rarely needs trimming. The Bottle Palm is an easy choice for growers who want to create a personal paradise, without spoiling valuable relaxation time with time-consuming clean-up.

Proof that this Palm is Perfect for Shorelines and Pools
Bottle Palms have been tested on the coastlines of South Florida, Southern California and Hawaii, where they are easy to grow and maintain. The unique palm tree easily withstands salty air and ocean spray and is also naturally resistant to insects, disease and chlorine. Occasionally water its leaves, and your Bottle Palm will be a shapely, healthy companion for your indoor pool, outdoor pool, or seashore patio. Just imagine spending long afternoons basking by the water, as the dwarf Bottle Palm catches a light breeze and filters dappled shade on your tropical drink.

A Surprising Way to Revitalize Your Living Space
The Bottle Palm thrives as well in a container as it does in the ground. Because it’s a slow grower and has a shallow, small root ball, this palm tree doesn't need constant repotting. Expect the same Bottle Palm to thrive in one pot for many years.

Bottle Palms easily share space, so you can freely plant 2-4 together in a large container for a sensational, eye-catching centerpiece that will enhance sunny entryways, living rooms, home offices— and any other spot you’d like to show it off!

You’ll Love This Lively Conversation Starter
If you're in a zone that enables you to grow the Bottle Palm, consider yourself lucky.  You'll enjoy a tropical presence that’s unique among all other palm trees. No one really knows how or why, but on one faraway isle in the Indian Ocean the Bottle Palm gained its beautiful, dwarf shape. Growers saw the potential in this novel look, and it probably saved the palm tree from extinction. It’s extreme difference in appearance from other palms that stand tall and slender often spark intrigue.  Expect the Bottle Palm and its backstory to spark more than a few interesting conversations with your houseguests!

Don’t miss out on this unique palm tree. Order soon, while supplies last!

Some dying foilage from shipping but it's slowly recovering.
It's a beautiful palm tree. It's still recovering from the packaging during the shipping process but overall I think it's coming along quite nicely.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bottle Palm Tree


Bottle Palm Tree Planting Diretions

Location: The Hyophorbe lagenicaulis, commonly called the bottle palm, grows best in USDA plant hardiness zones 10 to 11. The tree only stands 10-12 feet tall when fully grown but its fronds can reach 12 feet, so choose a planting location that affords the tree’s fronds ample growth room. The tree’s petite size makes it an ideal palm for container growth.

 

Planting Instructions: Plant the bottle palm in full to partial sun for best growth. It can withstand full sunlight but does not tolerate consistently dry soil conditions. When placed in full sun, the tree will require regular watering to keep the soil moist. The tree will grow in shade but its growth may be affected. In instances where the tree is planted in full shade, the bottle palm tends to develop a longer trunk and it is not uncommon for the tree to start leaning towards sunlight.

 

Choose a planting location with well-draining soil. The bottle palm tolerates a wide range of soil conditions and is not overly picky.

 

Dig a hole twice the size of the tree’s root ball. Place the tree into the hole and firm the soil around the tree’s root system to remove any air pockets.

 

Apply two to three inches of mulch around the top of the tree’s root system to discourage weed growth and keep the soil moist. However, place the mulch so that it does not touch the tree’s base. Ideally, the mulch should be at least two to three inches away from the tree’s trunk.

 

Container Growth: The bottle palm will grow indoors or outdoors in a container. Plant the palm in a mid-size container that is at least twice the size of the tree’s root ball. Use a cactus soil potting mixture and a container with plenty of holes on the base when planting the palm to assist with water drainage. Once potted, water the palm when the first two inches of soil feels dry to the touch.

 

Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist for the first 6-8 months so the tree can establish an adequate root system. After, water the tree weekly if has not rained. During the summer months, the tree may also require supplemental watering.

 

Fertilizer: Fertilize the bottle palm in the spring, mid-summer, early and late fall. Use a general purpose fertilizer specifically for palms that has a high potassium content. Try to add fertilizer while the soil is damp and then water deeply. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer’s label for application ratios.

 

Pruning: The bottle palm tree requires very little pruning to maintain its majestic appearance. Remove dead or damaged fronds as needed. Cut the dead palm close to the tree’s trunk to remove.

 

Pests and Disease: The bottle palm is relatively pest and disease free. On occasion, the palm may become infested with spider mites. The mites can be hosed off the tree’s fronds with water or an application of insecticide can be used to control the pests. Follow the instructions on the insecticide label for application.

 

Frost Protection: The bottle palm tree does not tolerate frost. If the temperature is going to drop  below 30 degrees Fahrenheit the tree must be brought indoors or protected. If the tree must be left outdoors, tie the fronds up and wrap the tree in a frost blanket. Temperatures below 30 degrees Fahrenheit will kill the bottle palm.
