King palms typically start flowering around eight to ten years old from seedlings. Over fifty of them in my landscape which also means tons of falling fruit and seedlings popping up.

How close are some of your archontophoenix planted? looks like 3 feet for some.

If you like the rain forest look like I do, it’s visually pleasing. It also helps protect palms from the dry winds we get here in California. Jim’s garden is a beautiful example of this.

Most of mine are in tight groves. Some trunks are touching each other. I do have a few that are stand-alone’s however.

King palms can grow in close proximity to one another without any negative effect. I have a double that is basically fused at the base and they are growing fine . As they grew , they gave each other space for the crowns . Both are flowering and one of them has fruit. Harry

Thank you both for sharing that. I knew archontophoenix could be grown in closer proximity without ill effect than many other palms but didn't know you could get this close and be A-ok. This will inform my planting decisions. Have several in the genus that will be going in ground this year.
