Description of Adonidia Palm Tree
At JMC Nursery in Pine Island, just a short drive from Cape Coral, we carry the Adonidia palm tree. It is a very common palm tree in South Florida because it is perfect for many different applications. It can easily be grown in a large pot or planter to be kept on the patio or by the pool, but is most commonly installed in the ground, where it can reach its full, mature height. Many of our customers love to use the Christmas Palm Tree in their Cape Coral landscaping projects, as they do not get too tall and are self cleaning.
The Adonidia, or Christmas palm, as many people call it, is an easy care palm. It’s self-cleaning, meaning the spent fronds just fall off by themselves, a big low-maintenance plus. Therefore, no trimming is necessary!
This tropical palm tree, is also called Dwarf Royal because it is like a small version of the tall, smooth-trunked street palms seen on tropical south Florida streets and parks, the Royal palm.
Single trunk Adonidia palms work almost anywhere since they won’t grow too large or too fast to overwhelm most houses. Christmas palms make good focal points in small tropical gardens and, when taller and more mature, they can become an elegant and classic statement palm.
We also grow triple Christmas Palms in Pine Island. Three individual plants growing together to make them look like a nice, full clump. Many customers request the triple trunk Adonidia Palm for their Cape Coral landscaping and Fort Myers landscaping, as they do very well in these general area while adding a tropical touch.
