Product Description

Puerto Rico Silver Palm - Coccothrinax barbadensis
Barbados Silver Palm Description


The exotic yet tropical Florida Silver Palm is one of the most adaptable palm trees for zones 9b to 11a. The Florida Silver Palm radiates tropical beauty and is also known as the Silver Thatch Palm. This single trunk palm rarely grows more than 12 to 25 ft tall with a spread of about 6 to 8 FT. In its native habitat, the Silver Thatch Palm enjoys moist soil and tolerates poor soils that have good drainage. The Florida Silver Palm thrives in rich, slightly acidic well draining soils. This palm tree also does extremely well with salt winds and being around beach environments. This Tropical Palm comes from the Islands of the Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and is popular with south Floridians. The medium sized solitary fan palm is best planted in a full sun and will tolerate no extra waterings once established. The Silver Thatch Palm makes a great accent as it is considered to embody the tropical appearance of being on an island. You can find this palm tree growing natively in Antigua, Barbados, Barbuda, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Marie Galante, Martinique, Saint Lucia and Trinidad.
