Why Choose a Coconut Palm?

Do you dream of taking that beach vacation in paradise and want to bring that feeling to your own personal space, a special event you’re in charge of, or need to add an appealing atmosphere to your business setting? Then let the Coconut Palm come to your rescue. 

Wherever used and whatever your needs, Coconut Palms aren’t shrinking violets and will definitely make a bold but beautiful statement. Whether you desire to add a lush green appeal and tropical feeling to an event or for your own personal enjoyment, the addition of a Coconut Palm won’t disappoint. They are like the tropics wrapped up in one magnificent tree. 

Coconut Palms sport smooth gray trunks with attractive rings from old leaf scars. As the trunk matures it can take on a graceful curving effect. Although smaller when grown in containers, the mature palm can reach 50 to 70 feet tall with a canopy spread of around 10 to 15 feet.

Feathery green fronds grow up to 18 feet long and contain up to 200 divided leaflets, making a showy display of year-round and seasonal color. The tree is self-cleaning meaning it naturally drops fronds as they turn brown and die.

Of course, the palm is known for the tasty coconut fruits the tree produces. Trees start producing fragrant stalks of yellowish flowers when around four to six years old. The pollinated flowers then develop into coconuts.

The Coconut Palm is the answer to your quest if you seek to create an environment that screams tropical paradise. 

What Is an Annual Palm?

Annual palms like Coconut Palms are tropical in nature and only thrive year-round in consistently warm locales. However, don’t let that put you off because Coconut Palms bring fabulous displays of annual tropical splendor and green lushness to spaces when temperatures are warm, usually during the months of May through October. They’re guaranteed to add a striking display of exotic color and tropical beauty wherever used. This is why they make gorgeous palms to include when staging a special event, used in a business or in your personal home setting.

How Can I Use a Coconut Palm?

With their tall single trunks and canopies filled with feathery green lushness, the possibilities of a Coconut Palm’s uses when it comes to bringing a tropical blast to locations is almost endless. Whether you want to pump up the tropical flavor at your business establishment or event, you’ll be surprised at what a few strategically placed Coconut Palms can do all on their own. 

Even if you desire to give a pool area the aura of a glamorous beach retreat, adding Coconut Palms throughout the area will complement your design expectations and enhance the look ten-fold. You can even create a bit of privacy to the pool, patio, or deck area. 

With their tropical good looks, Coconut Palms also make striking additions used as a specimen, focal point, accents, mixed among other tropical plants, or to add structure and warm color to an area. The palm works well to bring notice to a particular location or to line an entranceway. Wherever you decide to use this feathery beauty, it’s bound to add a relaxing, warm, and welcoming feel.

Q: How often should I water my palms?
A: In general, palms should be watered daily with 4 to 5 gallons of water for the first two weeks until the root system is established. Ensure that the soil is wet and not soggy. Too much water may cause permanent damage. Depending on the type of palm and time of year, watering may be decreased to twice a month or less once the tree is established. Make sure you water the trees from the bottom up. Watering from the top down can cause rotting. Soil that has good drainage is important to help prevent over saturation and adding sand to the soil mixture can help with drainage. Placing mulch around the base of the tree and not against the trunk can also help with retaining water. 

For cold hardy palms, watering will vary depending on the time of year and the temperature. Here is a guideline for how much to water in any given season.

Winter (60 degrees of less) no need to water, except for the first 30 days after installation. (5 gallons or till mote is full)

Spring (75 degrees or less) water palm once a week. (5 gallons or till mote is full)

Beginning of summer (90 degrees or less) 2-3 times a week

Heat of summer (90 degrees and above) 4-5 times a week

Q: When do I apply fertilizer to my palm tree?
A: Newly planted palms should not be fertilized until they put out a new spear. For palms planted from the Georgia/Tennessee border down to Atlanta, apply fertilizer in three applications. In heavy clay soils use half the recommended amount of fertilizer, and do not apply granular fertilizers after August 1. Be sure to fertilize only during the growing season (between April 1 and August 1). 

Q: It is a good idea to correctly support larger, newly planted palms?
A: Larger palms will require some form of bracing to maintain stability during the first six to eight months after installation. Three equidistantly-spaced braces are used to support the palm. If Atlanta Palms installs your palm tree, we handle the bracing. 

Q: When should I prune my palm tree?
A: The only time you should prune your palm tree is when the fronds are discolored, broken or pointing to the ground at more than a 90 degree angle. Palms get most of their energy from their fronds, so it’s important to be careful not to remove too many. 

Q: Why are drip irrigation systems preferable to sprinklers?
A: Both drip irrigation and sprinklers are good irrigation systems for your palm trees. Drip irrigation is designed to have deeper saturation into a specific area. Sprinklers (spray irrigation) will only saturate the top 3-5 inches per watering cycle whereas Palms root balls are 2-3 feet deep and require a deeper water saturation to develop new roots. Newly planted palms can suffer root loss with a lapse in deep water saturation especially during the hotter and drier summer months.
