Bismarck Palm Tree

Bismarck Palm Tree

This precious palm looks a lot different than most other palm trees. You can find a lot of them here in Florida.

This fan palm is native to Madagascar and can grow up to 60 feet high with a spread of 16 feet, which is why it's recommended to plant them in bigger areas. The leaves of the Bismarck Palm Tree shine silver and they can grow almost 4 feet wide.

It is recommended to plant this type of palm tree in a wind-protected area since they can be damaged by freezing temperatures. They also like to be in full sun.

USDA hardiness zones 10-11 are recommended, but Bismarck Palm Trees can also grow in warmer parts of Zone 9.

Water

Water new trees 3-4 times per week during the first month, 2 times per week during the second month and once a week for the first two years. Place organic mulch around the tree (3- to 4-inch depth), but make sure to keep it several inches away from the trunk.

Fertilization

Newly planted Bismarck Palm Trees should not be fertilized until new growth is visible. Bismarck Palm Trees need to be fertilized one to four times a year at the rate of 1 1/2 pounds per 100 square feet of palm landscape area.

Sun

Bismark Palm Trees should be grown in full sun or partial sun.

Cold Tolerance

Bismark Palm Trees are cold hardy and can tolerate temperatures down to 15-20 Fahrenheit.
