Can grow in all areas of Florida and survive extremely low temperature of 18oF. They are conducive for streets and highway growing or yards where height is not a problem as they can grow to heights of 70 to 100 feet.
Canary Island Date Palm/Pineapple Palm
This palm is a beauty and needs to be frequently trimmed and pruned to preserve its aesthetic value. It can reach heights of 40 to 50 feet and spreads out like a pineapple with a massive canopy. Thus, it requires some space to effectively grow. It originates from the Canary Islands and grows slowly with ability to survive low temperatures of 15oF to 18oF.
Jelly or Pindo Palms
This is a South American palm species and stands out with its blue-green palm leaves that spread out from its smooth trunk nearly touching the ground.
