A Tiny Taste of the Tropics!
The Pygmy Date Palm is both a mini slice of paradise and the ultimate space saver.
There are plenty of reasons why this palm is perfect for you…
• Compact size perfect for numerous landscapes
• Very container happy
• Zero to little maintenance
• Eye-catching flowers, foliage, and fruits
Your Pygmy Date Palm will acclimate to any surrounding you choose. Its maximum height reaches only 9 feet, making it a versatile plant in any natural design. Set several against walkways, ponds, or natural paths for an exotic touch. It’s also beautiful as a container plant, and it will add a wow factor to your patio or inside the home. The emerald leaflets curve into a crown, which is complimented by yellow-hued flowers that turn to sweet purple dates.
Easy as They Come
The Pygmy Palm will grow splendidly outdoors in growing zones 9 and above. If temps dip regularly below 30 in the winter, it’s best to keep your palm in a container for an easy move indoors. Just make sure to have a well-lit window the tree can stay by. Maintain a regular watering schedule and keep the soil moist until established. After that, water only when the top of the soil is dry. Your Pygmy Palm loves a potassium rich fertilizer several times a year in the growing season. Forget about pests and disease since this type of palm attracts neither. Your tree loves full sun, and it can even handle moderate amounts of drought.
Not at all. Your Pygmy Date Palm requires very little cutting since the tree self-releases old leaves. You may need to cut back some aged leaves from time to time as well as clean up spent foliage and fruit around the trunk. Be careful! The palm has tiny thorns for predator protection.
Flowers? Check. Fruit? Check. Exotic appeal? Check.
