Pictures of palm trees. Types of palm trees for landscaping tropical yards. Also, cold hardy palm tree pictures to provide you with landscape design ideas.
This photo, like most of the palm tree pictures on this page, was taken in Central Florida. Mexican fans and Pygmy Dates have been used here to beautify the entrance to a residential neighborhood.
A group of the taller Washingtonia robusta palms have been placed behind the wall, while a pair of dwarf Phoenix roebelenii palms grace each side of the sign.
This kind of landscaping at the entrance announces to all who pass that this is an upscale community.
A pair of Queens and a pair of Pygmy Dates give the landscaping in this small front yard tropical flair. These 2 (this 1 and the 1 just below) Queen palm pictures also give you an idea of the difference in size between these 2 species.
The Queen palm tree is the more cold tolerant of the 2. The second Pygmy Date in the center bed here froze its head off last winter.
These trees are planted in zone 9a in a south facing exposure.
It is safer to plant roebelenii palm trees in a more protected area in this zone. Placing them beneath taller trees or next to a house or body of water will often provide them with enough added warmth to pull through all but our coldest winters undamaged.
The striking red stems in this photo are those of the Lipstick palm tree.
The tall, spiky palm-like plant with the pinkish leaves beside it is a Madagascar Dragon tree.
The Lipstick palm, Cyrtostachys renda (previously designated as Cyrtostachys lakka), is also called the Red Sealing Wax palm because of its scarlet leaf bases.
Sealing Wax palm trees are not widely grown in the continental U.S. because they require constant warmth and moisture.
The trees will grow in sun or shade in moist or boggy soil. They can take standing water but drought will kill them. This is an excellent palm to use in pond landscaping in tropical areas.
Cyrtostachys renda seed takes about 8 weeks to germinate.
