Christmas Palm Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions
sun shining


Plant your Christmas Palm in an area that receives full sun (6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day).

drops of water


Water your Palm 2-3 times per week for the first month, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.



If necessary, use a palm-specific fertilizer for your Palm. Slow-release fertilizer is best to allow the smaller root system to uptake what it needs. Apply close to the base and start in spring/follow specific fertilizer instructions.

The Top Palm for Container Growing

Vibrant tropical flair, right in your own backyard. With multi-trunk 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. 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!

Gorgeous and healthy

Just got my tree today . I ordered a 7 gallon Christmas palm and it’s very much worth the cost in my opinion . It is in perfect condition despite being in a box for transport for a week . I am very happy and thankful to FGT for giving me a beautiful tree :)

Yellow leaves

It is not sound great honestly hope it pulls out of it. But the leaves have all turned yellow mostly since planting in the he. We have dialed back the watering but that hasn’t really helped
