Growing tropical palms in NC


Palmy Pal

Recommended Posts

Here’s a few of the tropical palms I grow here in southern NC. I figured I’d do an update/track the progress of these since it’s been a while. The double Pygmy date palm is one I’ve had for a good while and is starting to really show off a decent trunk. Should be a pretty cool specimen once it matures. The Christmas palm is one I picked up at a nursery in FL not long ago. The double foxtails are seed from Venice FL and the foxtails stay cozy in the greenhouse for winter. The pygmy date and Christmas palm stay in the garage when it gets cold and they go back outside during the day most of the time since it’s usually pretty warm during daylight. 👍🌴

Beautiful one you got there. The doubles are such a tropical vibe when mature. Gotta love how easy going they are. And they look awesome! 🌴
