Christmas Palm, Adonidia Merrilli

Often referred to as Christmas Palm or Dwarf Royal. Large bunches of bright red fruit (seeds) are produced around Christmas time. This attractive and slower growing palm can reach between 15-20 feet in height. In landscaping, professionals recommend spacing of 15-20 feet between palms. They are available in multi stem or single trunk. Sensitive to temperatures below 40˚F. Damage will occur with frost and freezing temperatures.
