Phoenix Sylvestris is very famous palmtree. It is widely used in landscapes. Its height ranges in between 4m to 14m. Its characteristics resembles very much with the Phoenix dactyleferia. Phoenix sylvestris also called silver date palm, Indian date, sugar date palm and wild date palm. It is a type of blooming plant in the palm family local to southern Pakistan, the majority of India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma and Bangladesh. It is additionally allegedly naturalized in Mauritius, the Chagos Archipelago, Puerto Rico and the Leeward Islands. Growing in fields and scrubland up to 1300 m above ocean level, the organic product from this palm species is utilized to make jelly. The sap is tapped and inebriated new or matured into hard stuff. The crisp sap is bubbled to make palm jaggery in West Bengal condition of India and Bangladesh.
Washingtonia Robusta is a hardy palm which is thread bearing , fast growing and easy to transplant.
It is commonly seen at 40 to 50 feet but capable of
soaring to 80 feet in height, Washington Palm is
quickly recognized as the much-used, straight, single-trunked street palm of years past. The lower leaves persist on the tree after they die, forming a dense, brown, shaggy covering below the living, bright green, broad, fan-shaped leaves, giving it the common name of petticoat palm. These dead fronds are known to be a fire hazard and a popular bedding roost for rodents and, because of this, must be removed by law in some areas. The sharply barbed leaf petioles and tall, thin trunks make frond removal a rather unpleasant task, but some people think the rapid growth rate and statuesque appearance more than make
up for this trouble.
Washington Palm makes a dramatic statement in the large landscape and creates a striking accent formulti-storied homes but often grows out of scale in most landscapes with one-story buildings because all of the fronds are at the top of the palm. It looks like a telephone pole with a green hat. Washingtonia filifera is a much better choice in unirrigated landscapes, since
it grows more slowly, is shorter, and the trunk is thicker. Washington Palm needs full sun for best growth but will endure some shade while young. It will tolerate poor soil and drought, and is hardy to about 20-degrees F. Transplant with a large root ball to ensure survival. Washingtonia filifera is shorter, has a thicker trunk, and is better suited for planting in dry urban landscapes, such as in Texas. They reportedly suffer and often die from root rot when irrigated. Select Washingtonia robusta in an irrigated landscape and for the eastern U.S.
Trachycarpus Fortunei is a quick growing palm. Trunk of it is entwined into a confusing mass by its fiber.
The erect, single trunk of Windmill Palm is covered with dense, brown, hairlike fibers, and thethree-foot-wide, fan-shaped fronds extend from 1 .5-foot-long, rough-edged petioles. The trunk appears to be wrapped in burlap. A very slow-growing palm, Windmill Palm can reach 40 feet inheight but is often seen much smaller, 10 to 20 feettall. Windmill Palm works well as a framing tree, accent, specimen, patio or urn subject. It is ideal foruse as an accent in a shady shrub border or by a frontentryway. It does well in confined areas and is hardy to 10-degrees F. or lower.
Windmill Palm should be grown in shade or partial shade on fertile soil to look its best, but it is also tolerant of full sun on well-drained soils whengiven ample moisture in the northern part of its range. Plants should be watered faithfully. Protection fromharsh winds will minimize leaf tearing, but plants can be used successfully close to the shore, being quitetolerant of salt and wind. There are fine examples of mass plantings where palms are spaced six to 10 feet apart around a patio or sitting area. They have alsobeen used very successfully lining an entry walk to a large building. This adds a formal elegance to anystructure, especially one with a glass facade. Propagation is by seed. Windmill Palm may be infected by root rot, moderately susceptible to lethal yellowing disease, and leaf spots.
Sabal Palmetto is a hardiest palm which originates from tropical regions. It is salt and frost tolerant.
It is capable of reaching 90 feet or more in the woods
(when shaded or protected by surrounding trees) but
usually seen at 40 to 50 feet in height, this amazingly
sturdy native palm has a rough, fibrous trunk that is
quite variable in shape, from straight and erect, to
curved or leaning. Cabbage Palm is topped
with a very dense, 10 to 15-foot-diameter, round
crown of deeply cut, curved, palmate leaves. This is
South Carolina’s and Florida’s state tree, and is well-
suited to use as a street planting, framing tree,
specimen, or clustered in informal groupings of
varying size. Cabbage Palm is ideal for seaside locations. The four to five-foot-long, creamy white, showy flower stalks in the summer are followed by small, shiny, green to black fruits which are relished by squirrels, raccoons, and other wildlife.Cabbage Palm is about as hurricane-proof as a tree can be. They stand after many hurricanes have blown over the oaks and snapped the pines in two. They adapt well to small cutouts in the sidewalk, and can even create shade if planted on 6 to 10 foot centers.Clean the trunk of leaf bases to eliminate a habitat for roaches. Cabbage Palm is exceptionally easy to transplant and will thrive in full sun or partial shade. It will adapt to slightly brackish water as well as dry, sandy locations and requires no special care once established. But it needs to be watered regularly until established
since all cut roots die back to the trunk after transplanting. New roots are regenerated from the
base of the trunk and require warm soil temperatures and plenty of water to survive. There is evidence showing that removing all the fronds increases transplant survival. Tie the top-most fronds together if only lower fronds are removed so that the bud is protected during transport. Cabbage Palm is drought-tolerant, but not until it is well-established in the landscape after transplanting. New transplants (particularly those receiving too little water) are
particularly susceptible to the palm weevil which kills the palm. Although one of the hardier palms, 11-degrees F. killed about twenty-five percent of the Cabbage Palms in 1983 in Baton Rouge.
Rhapis Excelsa is a house plant and easy to care. Used as interior and in exterior landscapes. It bears glistening leaves. Also known as bamboo palm or lady palm. The delicate Lady Palm forms dense clumps of bamboo-like stalks topped with very dark green, broad, fan-shaped leaves . Performing well in northside foundation plantings or other shady locations, slow-growing Lady Palm is also ideal for containers. They lend a rich tropical look to the landscape. Lady Palms can be effective accents in a shrub border or near an entryway. Plant on three to four foot centers to create a mass effect. Locate them in a low-growing ground cover such as Mondo Grass or Lily-Turf for a dramatic effect.
This palm looks wonderful when it is lighted from below, or silhouetted at night. Lady Palm needs partial to deep shade and fertile organic soil to look its best but will tolerate the poor light, dust, and drought usual of indoor container culture. Be sure that drainage is adequate for indoor use. Spreading slowly by underground stems, Lady Palm is usually propagated by division. Make more divisions than you need since many canes may not transplant successfully. There are several other species of Rhapis for different leaf sizes and shapes. Pest problems include scale, palm aphids, sooty mold, and caterpillars, although none are usually serious.
Phoenix rupicola is a graceful palm, which can grow both in cold and hot regions. It is one of the easiest to grow phoenix palm and have much neater and cleaner appearance.
Phoenix rupicola palm trees develop to 8 meters (26 ft) in tallness, and 20 cm in width. They are generally spotless of leaf bases with the exception of close to the crown.
Leaves are 2.5 to 3 m long, 35 cm pamphlets, pinnately orchestrated, on 50 – 60 cm pseudo petioles outfitted with spines. The spines are a great deal less various and less brutal than the other Phoenix species.
The organic product is an oval, yellow to orange fleshy, 2 cm long containing a solitary vast seed.
Phoenix (rupicola – Latin, occupant of rocks) or cliff date palm is a types of blooming plant in the palm family, local to the rocky woodlands of India and Bhutan from 300 to 1200 m, more often than not happening on bluffs, slopes and comparable landscape. It is debilitated by natural surroundings misfortune in its local range. On the other hand, the species is purportedly naturalized in the Andaman Islands, the Leeward Islands, Cuba and Puerto Rico and an example has as of late been accounted for in Saint Lucia..
Phoenix roebelenii, commonly known as pygmy date palm, or just robellini, is a types of date palm local to southeastern Asia. The Pygmy Date palm bears a slim trunk and has nice crown of feathery leaves.
Phoenix Dactylifera is commercially importance is for producing dates. Also used as ornamental plant Excellent resistance to drought conditions. Growth Habits:Large suckering palm tree, up to 80 feet tall (24 m), up to 25 feet in diameter (7.5 m); trunk with no crownshaft, up to 12 inches in diameter (30 cm); pinnate, gray green leaves.
