Sylvester Palm Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions
sun shining


Plant your Sylvester 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.

An Elegant Low Maintenance Palm

If you've always wanted to bring the tropics to your yard, then this is the palm for you. Sylvester Palms grow in a variety of climates and soils. They're extremely drought tolerant and low maintenance. Plant them, and watch them grow.

This Date Palm variety has the beautiful look that landscape designers are searching for. Their silvery blue-green leaves provide the dazzling color that causes people to stop and stare. They have a unique diamond pattern on their trunk that gives it a textured look similar to a pineapple.

Their long weeping branches spread into a circular canopy for a perfectly symmetrical look. It sits perfectly atop a long trunk. Golf courses and resorts are just dying to get their hands on these, and you can have them in your own yard.

Guests and neighbors won't know if they're near your home or a tropical getaway, especially when this palm starts to fruit and clusters of creamy white flowers transition to bright-colored dates, pollinated by birds and insects.

At first, they're orange and aren't ready to be harvested until they turn a dark purple to black color. Sylvester dates are commonly used for making wine and jams but can be eaten fresh.

These popular palms sell out fast. Don't hesitate to get yours today, before they're gone!
