OTHER: A Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit winner, the Pygmy Date Palm is a very popular ornamental dwarf tree. A native of Southeast Asia, these understory plants are able to grow well in part shade & low light. They tolerate a wide variety of soils but prefer a sandy, well-drained medium. These miniature palms trees are slow growing, reaching an average of 6 -10’ tall outdoors. Indoors, they typically only grow to about 4 - 5’ tall making these pest resistant plants a wonderful selection for a container or house plant.
These palms have a single trunk, but are often planted in groups, sometimes so close together it appears as though it’s a multi-trunked tree. As they mature, leaf scars will be left on the trunk making a beautiful pattern, & with age also comes aerial roots. This dwarf has evergreen foliage with 2 – 4’ long fronds that form an arching canopy that extends to 5 – 7’ wide. They have spines near base of the leaves by the trunk. The plants are dioecious, & if pollinated, the female trees’ 1’ long panicles of cream spring flowers turn to edible fruit by fall. The fruits are dark purple to brown or black in color, & measure ½”.
