LOVES SUN AND HEAT
This pinnate New World species is another favorite of mine. There are multiple species of Roystonea. The most common and sought after species is the Cuban Royal, Roystonea regia. Compared to the South American Royal Palm, Roystonea regia’s leaves hang down past (lower than) the midway point of the crown. Roystonea oleracea’s leaves stop at the “half moon” point and don’t hang down near the trunk.
Royal Palms love heat and sun. Cold tolerance is about 25 degrees F. They are fast growers. We have a pretty good supply available of assorted sizes. Note how the base of the well grown Royal Palm is quite swollen and fat. On up the trunk there is variable swelling present. The plants I’m putting on special today are an easily shipped size of 5 gallon but would take a tall box. They are about 6 feet tall in their pots. BTW, on the garden shots below, the first two were taken in the San Diego area.
