Dry Desert Climates

Water Palm TreeYou don’t need to live in Hawaii to experience the beauty of palm trees. You can actually grow them just about anywhere and that’s amazing to me. A little while ago we discussed which palm trees you could grow in extremely cold temperatures, so now we will talk about the opposite. Which ones can you grow in dry almost desert like climates? There are a few and we can learn most of them within this post. So get ready to learn about palms trees and which ones I would grow if I lived in a desert or an area like Texas, Arizona, etc.

Which Palms Grow?

There aren’t a million species that survive in the desert climate, but some do and I will explain which ones. Everyone should grow a palm tree at least once in their life. It’s an unforgettable experience. Seeing your palm go from a seed to a full tree is almost magical and they bring life to any situation. The Bismarckia nobilis palm is a great tree for desert environments, specifically Arizona, southern California, and parts of Florida. Most of the blue palms do well in dry areas. The Brahea can survive high temperatures and grows great in parts of Mexico. You also have the Brahea armatas or the Blue Mexican Fan Palm. The Brahea armata is a beautiful palm with leaves that have a silver tint and there is also the Brahea clara which has leaves that tend to droop down more often, but they also grow very well in these dry areas.
