There is no question that palm trees have the unique ability to give any outdoor area that tropical feeling. For those who live on a sunny beach with tropical weather, it’s easy to overlook this. It’s a bit more challenging when recreating this environment in a less tropical environment.
There are a number of cold-hardy palm trees available, especially for grow zones 7B-11. It is important that you check the minimum temperatures for the palms you are interested in, and make sure they are compatible with the USDA Cold Hardy Zone you are located in. Palms such as the Needle Palm, the most cold-hardy palm, can survive temperatures of 0° with short drops to -5°. If you are located anywhere in zone 6b and above, this palm is a great cold-hardy option for you.
At Atlanta Palms, we specialize in cold-hardy palms and carry more than ten varieties. Cold-hardy palm trees tend to be pricier than their non-cold-hardy counterparts. This is because cold-hardy palm trees are generally slow-growing—the slower the tree grows, the more expensive it often is.
Patio Palms are a solution for those who want to quickly add a tropical vibe to their pool, patio, balcony, or any other space. With Patio Palms, you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars, or wait years for your palms to grow tall and mature; pool palms have an immediate tropical impact on the space! Additionally, you don't need to worry about installation if you choose to place the palm in a container. We love how easy breezy Patio Palm installation is: just set it and forget it!
Some of the benefits of Patio Palms include:
- They have the classic palm shapes seen in tropical environments.
- They are fast-growing and inexpensive for larger sizes.
- Patio palm trees can be placed anywhere—a small balcony, the corner of a patio, by the pool, or near the door.
- They are a great solution for people who want palms but are not homeowners, so they don't want to invest a lot of money on a palm in their rental home.
- They are easy to install. Just stick it inside the pot or desired container, or even leave it in the container it comes in!
- Most importantly, you do not need to worry about any unfortunate winter sub-zero freezes. Patio Palms in containers can be brought indoors for the winter, or, if you prefer, their low price allows for them to be replaced yearly.
