Why Choose a Christmas Palm? 

Are you looking to bring a bit of a seasonal tropical feeling to a location, your business, or to a special event? Then look no further than the lush and elegant Christmas Palm. With its smooth, single trunk and long arching fronds, it’s sure to add a sophisticated elegance wherever needed. Its tall vertical habit makes it the perfect fit for smaller spaces. If you’re looking for a lush tropical look then the Christmas Palm is the plant for you. 

Christmas palms earn their name due to the bright red berries that usually ripen around the time of the holiday season. The red fruits make a stunning display of color against the green fronds adding to the palm’s beauty. It looks like the palm was adorned with holiday decorations. 

The popular Philippine native is one of the few palm trees that are well-suited for placement in smaller spaces. It typically grows up to 25 feet tall with a canopy spread of 5 to 10 feet when planted on the ground. Single trunks are smooth and gray and adding to the palm’s attractiveness are the green arching feathery fronds that grow up to 5 feet long. 

The fact of the matter is, Christmas Palms are just gorgeous palm trees and regardless of their placement are sure to grab the eye’s attention and give any location the feeling of a beachy paradise. 

Christmas Palms can be planted on the ground or in a planter. We recommend using planters, as this allows them to be moved around the pool or patio area, and makes protecting them from the cold easier by bringing them indoors. 

What Is a Patio Palm?

Patio Palm Trees are seasonal palms that make it easy to add a tropical flair to your pool or patio. No installation required! Patio Palm Trees last for one season and do not typically survive when temperatures drop below 30°F. The goon news, is if they are in a container you can bring these tropical beauties indoors for the colder season.

Patio Palms  like the Christmas Palm are tropical in nature and only thrive year-round in consistently warm locales. However, don’t let that put you off because Christmas Palms offer fabulous displays of annual tropical splendor and green lushness to spaces when temperatures are warm, usually during the months of May through October.

Q: How often should I water my palms?
A: Newly planted palms should be watered 3-4 times a week for the first month or until the root system is established. The amount of water used depends on the size of the palm. Make sure you water thoroughly to make sure the bottom roots receive water at every watering. The amount of water per palm may range from 2 gallons for small containerized material to 15 gallons for larger palms. Make sure the soil is draining correctly, adding sand to the soil mixture allows water to drain more effectively. Overwatering or bad drainage can cause permanent damage to the roots over time. Placing mulch over the roots can help with water retention. Use caution not to allow the mulch to touch the base of the palm, otherwise it can cause it to rot.

Watering varies depending on the time of year and the outside temperature and weather. Here is a guideline for how much to water in any given season:

Winter: (60 degrees or less) no need to water, except for the first 30 days after installation.

Spring: (75 degrees or less) water palm once a week.

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

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

Palms in a container or Pot: Palms in a container or pot need more frequent watering than those in the ground. 1-3 times a week depending on the season and weather.

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. Apply fertilizer only during the growth season (between April 1 and August 1).

Q: It is a good idea to correctly support larger, newly planted palms?
A: Some large palms will require bracing to maintain stability during the first eight months after installation. Three equidistantly-spaced braces are used to support the palm. If Atlanta Palms installs your palm tree, we will 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 with respect to the trunk. Palms get most of their energy from their fronds, so it’s important to be careful not to remove too many, especially if they are still partially green.

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 in deep water saturation especially during the hotter and drier summer months.
