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!
Customer Reviews & Photos

- Palm trees
Although I was disappointed with my palm trees, I’m giving 4 stars because I’m very satisfied with the customer service I received. I ordered one palm but got three in the same pot. They arrived in pretty good shape, but were almost impossible to separate into three pots because the roots were so thick and tangled. I think this led to them dying, but the company worked with me to fix the situation. I would definitely consider ordering from them again.
All four were packed great. They are doing so well and are so beautiful!
While they came on schedule, they didn't seem well packed with sufficient protection. Several main fronds were bent flat at the 'branch' portion (and there are only a few to begin with on young trees. The other had the frond ends bent flat. I'm doing what I can to help them survive, but I don't know if they will have enough in tact fronds to pull sufficient sun and grow properly! :(
We are very sorry to hear that your plant arrived damaged! Definitely let us know right away when this happens that way we can notate the order in case it doesn't recover. Go ahead and send us some current photos and we'll be happy to help!
One good/one not
Title says it all. One looks great & the other is struggling to hang on.
We're sorry to hear this! One of our customer care reps is going to email you privately to see what may be going on!
I have three Christmas Palm trees and they are beautiful! Can't wait for the fruit to grow. Everyone in the neighborhood loves them and can't stop complimenting them. Absolutely gorgeous!
