The Top Palm for Container Growing

Vibrant tropical flair, right in your own backyard. With Christmas Palms planted in your landscape, you can walk out the door to find paradise. 

Place yours in a container and bring it inside for the perfect accent piece, or place it on the porch or patio. By only growing 10 to 20 feet tall, and 5 to 10 feet wide when planted in the ground, Christmas Palms can fit anywhere. They are perfect for tight, compact spaces, including areas near sidewalks and driveways. This is the palm that won’t take over or outgrow the area.

However, their crowns are large enough to create relaxing areas of shade beneath them. They can be strategically placed to create shade by the pool, in the yard, or driveway to provide cool relief from the heat.

Best of all, Christmas Palms are incredibly low-maintenance and don’t require a lot of attention. All you have to decide is where your Christmas Palms will look best. Before you know it, you'll have mature, elegant palm trees in your yard or home, making a beautiful statement.

At the top of every Christmas Palm, you will find a lush green crown, filled with 10 to 12 arching fronds. They also have textured trunks with darker rings where older leaves used to be, giving them a unique pattern.

And in the summer, clusters of small green flowers bloom and quickly start growing into round, green fruit. In the late fall, towards December, the ornamental fruit turns a shade of scarlet red, and they look like Christmas ornaments, giving this color palm its name.

Basically, you'll have self-decorating trees that will thrive anywhere. Is there anything better? Lend a festive touch to your garden and order your own Christmas Palm today!

Christmas Palm surpassed my expectations!
I love it SO MUCH! It's such a thing of beauty.
I thought the price was expensive, but now I realize that it was not. Thank goodness you strapped that zip tie into the box, because the delivery folk do not lay that box down flat. He traveled all week across the country, and I think he'll be happy here in Southern California :)
I purchased the 5-6" Christmas tree. Looks like a triplet? Tree is slightly taller than 6 ft.

Totally satisfied!
The palm arrived fast in a very tall large box & was in great shape. I actually ordered one palm but received a clump of THREE! My landscaper & I carefully separated them & planted each one in a separate pot & so far so good. They look beautiful!

Christmas Palm is getting some new fronds
I had to bring the Palm inside. My outdoor environment is too hot and windy. The Palm took a bit of abuse but is recovering nicely.
I am happy with this now that it is indoors.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Christmas Palm

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Christmas Palm .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Christmas Palm gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Christmas Palm again after the transplant is complete.

House warming gift for friends who bought a house on the water. Would have been willing to pay much more for a bigger plant if it was offered. This site has the best plant size and plant options out there.

When is the best time to plant a palm tree spring or fall ?
carolyn d on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can plant in the spring or fall.
I am thinking about having these Christmas palms on my screen porch In pots. What type of planting soil would I used because there is no sandy soil in Georgia where I lived.?
thomas on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting Directions (potted):
1) Choose a container that is 2 times larger than the one the plant initially arrived in.
2) Use a quality, well draining acidic potting mix such as a palm or citrus mix.
3) Fill the container part way and place the palm in the container so that the soil is just below the top of the container and fill the remainder of the way.
4) Water until it begins to flow through the bottom drainage holes. Let the soil dry out almost completely before watering the plant again. They can can go up to 2 weeks without being watered.
If the plant is not getting enough water, the trunk will begin to shrivel. If it’s getting too much water, the fronds will yellow and the trunk can begin to rot.
i just received my christmas palm long should i wait to plant it in a pot?...and should i leave it in the sun for half a day
bdamon on Jul 11, 2018
How big is the plant (Christmas tree palm)i recieve?
Henry F on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The gallon sizes are listed because we cannot guarantee what height they will be. The heights can vary from 6-12 inches and up.
Are any of the Christmas palms considered doubles, triples or quadruples, meaning that they have two or three or four stems that branch from the treeeline?
Law Riverview on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I ordered 2 Christmas palms and both were triples. I considered splitting one into 3 plants but was worried about killing it so I did not. Both are doing quite well.
Since it gets below 30 degrees in my place can I put it in a pot and just bring it in my house when it gets that cold like I do with my ficus?
Nevacb on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I potted my Christmas Palm in a pot as soon as I got it. It lives outside in summer and comes in for winter.
Are the 4-5’ like the middle photo of the item gallery?
John Resto on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. Mine came as three separate plants and they don't look anything like those. I was expecting one plant that would eventually look like the middle picture.
i just bought this i add fertilizer aka soil or should i just add dirt and wait to fertilized it later?
bdamon on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would give it 4-6 weeks before adding fertilizer. Let it get a chance stabilize after transplanting.
Can these trees grow outdoors in the blue areas on the map too? Georgia in particular.
Jeff C on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be grown inside we call those patio plants. The growing zones outside are 9 to 11 and they are cold hardy down to 30 degrees F. You can leave it outside during the summer months and if you are outside of the growing Zones 9 to 11 you will have to bring it inside.
Is the 4-5’ Christmas palm actually 4-5’when it arrives like they state it is?
