Product Description

Dwarf Sugar Palm - Arenga engleri
Formosa Palm Description

The exotic yet tropical Formosa Palm is one of the most adaptable palm trees for zones 8b to 11a. The Formosa Palm radiates tropical beauty and is also known as the Taiwan Sugar Palm. This clumping palm rarely grows more than 8 to 10 ft tall with a spread of about 16 FT if alloted. In its native habitat, the Formosa Palm enjoys moist soil and tolerates poor soils that have good drainage. The Formosa palm thrives in rich, slightly acidic well draining soils. Popular with south Floridians, It is best planted in a protected understory. The Formosa palm makes a great accent as it is considered to embody the tropical appearance of being on an island.

This rare palm is grown in coastal areas and is the most pest free palm in cultivation. The Formosa Palm is a great container palm as it grows so slowly it won't outgrow its pot or its space.
