NATURALLY A SINGLE TRUNK PALM
Most people are familiar with this species, the Pygmy Date Palm. It is naturally a single trunks species. But, they are usually sold as “triples” – three individual plants in the same pot – so often, that people think it’s a suckering species. And, 99% of plants are sold as a “multiples”. Over a few decades, this species can get to a height of over ten feet. They are slow growing.
Triples grow slower than singles. This species is a type of Date Palm, so it does have spines on its stems. Growth rate is medium to slow. It likes full sun and is cold hardy to about 22 degrees F. Shown here are some 15 gallon singles that we’re putting on sale. They have about 2 feet of trunk and are at least 8 years old. In the garden, some feel they are more attractive than the triples and really show off their petite size and soft appearance. Limited numbers available. BTW, we do have 15 gallon triples that are cheaper than the singles but are not as old or tall.
|Shipping for mail order would be expensive because of the plant size.
