Peachtree City Cold-Hardy Palm Trees
Palms are popular in contemporary landscape design. With dramatic coloration that ranges from dark green to lime green, or from bright silver to a powdery blue, these landscaping plants are in high demand. Some people ask, “Can palm trees grow in Peachtree, Georgia?” Yes! Cold hardy palm trees are ideal for temperate gardens in our area. These striking outdoor plants can withstand deep freezes and winter frosts with ease, and some are even ideal in areas that get annual snowfall.
Some of our favorite cold hardy palms include:
Green Saw Palmetto
Green Saw Palmetto plants grow slowly and stay low to the ground. These meandering palms are hardy and extremely tolerant of sandy soils, cold, and drought conditions.
King Sago Palm Tree
With a thick, fibrous trunk and a beautiful fanfare of foliage, King Sago Palm trees are the star of any setting. These palms will thrive year-round outdoors or in containers.
Silver Saw Palmetto
Cold-hardy and drought tolerant, Silver Saw Palmetto plants are popular for their bright, silvery fronds and sprawling growth. These tropical landscaping plants are highly prized.
Blue Agave Palm
Agave Americana Giant
Blue Agave plants can grow up to ten feet high and ten feet across. Cold tolerant and drought resistant, these palms make stunning focal points in any landscape.The Agaves make a tasty tequila inspired treat for the local deer population, so it’s recommended to plant these palms inside of a fenced area.
Annual Palm Trees in Peachtree City
Annual palm trees are less tolerant of cold, wet conditions. During our hot, humid summers, these beautiful plants will happily grow nearly anywhere outdoors. But once temperatures drop below freezing, annual plants will not withstand fall and winter weather conditions. Annual palms should be brought inside at the end of the growing season as long as their size isn't an issue. Once these palms are too big to safely move indoors, it’s time to get growing again with a new plant.
Some growers dig palm trees up from the ground and move them into a pot for the winter season. Others prefer to grow and maintain palms in a container year-round. Annual palms make ideal houseplants as long as proper growing conditions are met.
Tips for growing palm trees in containers:
- Choose a pot that is at least 10 inches across with plenty of room for roots to grow. Drainage holes are required to protect against root rot.
- Soil should be loose and extremely well-draining. Soil amendments like perlite or horticultural sand may be required to ensure good aeration and drainage.
- Pay attention to watering cues to avoid over- or under-watering in winter months. Add a balanced fertilizer in spring at the start of the growing season to kickstart healthy new growth.
