At JMC Nursery in Pine Island, just a short drive from Cape Coral, we carry the Adonidia palm tree. It is a very common palm tree in South Florida because it is perfect for many different applications. It can easily be grown in a large pot or planter by the house, or can be installed in the ground, where it can reach its full, mature height.
The Adonidia, or Christmas palm, as many people call it, is an easy care palm. It's self-cleaning, meaning the spent fronds just fall off by themselves, a big low-maintenance plus. No trimming necessary.
This tropical palm tree, is also called Dwarf Royal because it is like a small version of the tall, smooth-trunked street palms seen on tropical south Florida streets and parks, the Royal palm.
Single trunk Adonidia palms work almost anywhere since they won't grow too large or too fast to overwhelm most houses. Christmas palms make good focal points in small tropical gardens and, when taller and more mature, they can become an elegant statement palm.
We also grow triple Christmas Palms in Pine Island. Three individual plants growing together to make them look like a nice, full clump. Many customers request the triple trunk Adonidia Palm for their cape coral landscaping, as they do very well in this general area while adding a tropical touch.
