Scientific Name: Veitchia merrillii, Adonidia merrillii (fmr.)

Common Names: Christmas Palm

Overview: Experience tropical festivity year-round with the delightful Christmas Palm! Named for its vibrant clusters of bright red fruits that appear each winter, this palm perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the season in a tropical silhouette. Standing elegantly with a slender, smooth trunk and beautifully arched fronds, it effortlessly becomes the centerpiece of any landscape. Ideal for smaller spaces due to its moderate growth size, the Christmas Palm offers the majesty of larger palms without dominating its surroundings. Whether planted singularly or in graceful clusters, it imparts a touch of the tropics combined with festive cheer. Easy to care for and drought-resistant once established, it thrives in full sun to partial shade.

Description

The Festive Plant with Tropical Flair

The Christmas Palm (Adonidia merrillii), so named for its vibrant, red fruit that appear around the winter holidays, is a popular tropical palm native to the Philippines. Perfectly suited for landscapes and gardens, it offers a festive touch combined with a tropical flair. The Christmas Palm is not only an iconic representation of the tropics but also a festive addition to landscapes and homes.

Caring for your Christmas Palm

With proper care, this palm will reward you with its graceful silhouette and holiday-themed fruits for years to come. Whether planted in your garden or showcased in your living room, the Christmas Palm is a testament to the beauty and resilience of nature.

Light

Christmas Palms thrive in full sun to partial shade. A minimum of 4-6 hours of direct sunlight is ideal for healthy growth and fruit production. Place the palm near a south- or west-facing window where it can receive ample sunlight. If insufficient natural light is available, supplement with artificial grow lights.

Soil

These palms prefer well-draining soil. A mix of sand and general-purpose potting soil works well for ensuring proper drainage. Ensure the pot has adequate drainage holes. Use a potting mix designed for palms or a mix of potting soil and sand.

Water

Christmas Palms enjoy consistently moist soil but are tolerant of occasional drought once established. It’s essential not to let the soil dry out completely. Watering once a week is a good rule of thumb, increasing the frequency during extremely hot conditions. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Ensure your planting site has good drainage and reduce watering during rainy seasons.

Indoor palms may require less frequent watering than outdoor palms. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Christmas Palms appreciate humidity. If your indoor air is dry, consider placing a humidifier nearby or occasionally misting the palm.

Fertilizer

Use a slow-release palm-specific fertilizer that contains essential micronutrients like magnesium, manganese, and iron. Fertilize 3-4 times a year: in the spring, early summer, late summer, and fall. Follow the product’s recommended dosages.

Pruning

Christmas Palms are self-cleaning, which means they’ll naturally shed dead or old fronds. However, if you see any fronds turning yellow or brown, you can prune them to keep the palm looking tidy. Use sharp pruning shears. Cut the unwanted frond close to the trunk, but be careful not to damage the trunk or nearby fronds.

Pests and Diseases

Christmas Palms are generally disease-resistant. However, like all plants, they can fall victim to pests and diseases. Watch out for palm aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Insecticidal soap or neem oil can help control these pests. The most common disease affecting Christmas Palms is root rot due to overwatering. Ensure the soil drains well and adjust watering habits if you notice the palm’s health declining.

    Beautiful, lovely, lush and green with huge healthy fronds. I will be ordering many more plants from PlantVine!

  4. Christopher (verified owner)

    When I opened the box, it was everything I wanted. Perfect condition and beautiful. It shipped up north to Minnesota, and is now an indoor container houseplant. The indoor amusement park at the Mall of America has these Christmas Palms, and they thrive. 3 weeks later, mine is thriving too. I love the quality of the plant and the care taken in it’s packaging. I will buy from Plantvine again!
