Florida’s Palm Trees Growth Rate, Tree Trunks and Palm Fronds
Palm trees in central and southern Florida grow at many different rates, this is one factor to keep in mind when designing new landscaping or just planting a few palms. They grow at different rates and to many different sizes when mature. A few species of small palm trees, also known as dwarf palms, are the Lady Palm Tree, European Fan Palm and Pygmy Date Palm. These smaller trees are slow growing and are perfect for smaller landscape designs. They tend to only grow to about a 5 foot spread and typically no taller than 10 feet.
Other palms such as the Queen Palm, Foxtail Palm, Royal Palm and Coconut Palm are fast growing palms that get quite large. Some of them can grow up to 100 feet with a 50 foot spread. The speed of their growth also depends largely on the environment they are grown in and care they receive. Palm trees in general grow faster in tropical climates like central and southern Florida.
Palm trees can have one or more trunks, another factor we consider when helping our clients choose the right palm for their landscaping. Multiple trunk palm trees are typically smaller palms. Single palm trees can be larger and faster growing like the Royal Palm or slower growing like the Canary Island Date Palm.
Palm tree fronds have two main types of leaf structure. One palm leaf structure is known as pinnate, consisting of feather like fronds that have separate leaflets that extend from the center of the palm. A few popular pinnate type palms are the Pygmy Date Palm, Areca Palm and the Bottle Palm. The other type of palm leaf structure is known as palmate palms, in which they have fan shaped fronds that come from the central point in the palm tree. The Bismarckia Palm, European Fan Palm and the Chinese Fan Palm are just a few examples of a palmate palm.
