With its Small Size and Striking Appearance, You’ll Find this Palm to be a Creative Landscaping Choice
The Bottle Palm makes a strong visual statement in tropical beds, along driveways or entryways. Its uniquely shaped thick trunk gives the palm its name, and its impact. Its sparse fronds are long and graceful. Some folks add one Bottle Palm as an accent, others group several together.
Once established, the Bottle Palm is moderately drought tolerant. They’re a great choice for coastal plantings, as they’re highly salt tolerant. Should the temperature take a cold dip, consider wrapping the palm head in a thick blanket. Freezing temperatures cause severe damage. Slow growing, the Bottle Palm is also smart choice for container planting. Make sure to place in full to part sun locations.
