The Top Palm For Container Growing

Christmas Palms or ‘Dwarf Royal Palms’ bring a vibrant tropical flair that’s usually only found in tropical lands far away right to your own yard. With Christmas Palms instead of traveling to an exotic beach, 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. They look great framing entryways and pools.  Your space doesn’t have to be without tropical beauty.

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 like 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 drive way to provide cool relief from the heat that’s great for hanging out in.

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 will 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 it a unique pattern. 

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. With Christmas Palms you will have self-decorating trees that will thrive anywhere.

Christmas Palm
These palms will look a lot like a Royal Palm when more mature. For the price I was hoping for a more mature plant but these showed up in great shape and have started growing. They will be small enough to move inside for any winter cold snaps.. When mature these are spectacular plants.

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.

Awesome customer service.
The first tree I received was in poor condition. I called immediately and I had a healthy replacement in two days. Awesome customer service... Thank you. I wish it was a little bigger for the price, but overall I am pleased.

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.

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.
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.
