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.

Florida Palms

Bismarck or Queen palms are some of the best for the humid Florida environment, but it’s really up to each person. Palms grow differently in each climate, so you need to be careful when selecting them and their type. It also depends on where you want to grow your palm because of size differences. You could put a few in the backyard or maybe you want to go ahead and start a palm tree garden? Palm tree care is another important part of successful palm growing. It includes things such as planting, watering, fertilizing, trimming, and cold protection. So many palms die because their owners don’t know how to properly care for them, which is a shame.
