A Majestic Choice for Palm Lovers
With gracefully arching top fronds, The Queen Palm can grow up to 60 ft. tall, with individual fronds spreading to 15 ft. long. When you’re deciding on a place to plant this popular palm, keep in mind it’s a fast grower and will reach impressive heights. Think ahead, so the palm will not dwarf its surroundings in a few years.
The Queen Palm thrives best in sandy, acidic soils. Considered to be one of the hardier palms, it can tolerate light frosts for short periods. A South American sun lover, this Palm puts out plumes of creamy white flowers in summer that birds adore.
