Adonidia Palm Tree - (Christmas Palm)

The adonidia palm - often called "Christmas Palm" - is a showy, highly ornamental palm that works beautifully in small landscape areas.  

The adonidia is easy's self-cleaning, meaning the spent fronds just fall off by themselves, a big low-maintenance plus. And adonidias are pretty much pest-free.

Single trunk specimens work almost anywhere since they won't grow too large or too fast to overwhelm most locations.

Christmas palms make good focal points in small tropical gardens and, when taller and more mature, they can become an elegant statement palm.

  • Perfect for a tropical garden as once it matures, white flowers will bloom with red berries
  • Grows best in full sun but can handle partial shade
  • Fronds will fall naturally as they brown
  • Fertilize at least once per season
  • Direct from farm, farm fresh

        Plant care

        Performing best in full sun, a Christmas palm tree can tolerate partial shade.

        But too much shade causes the trunks to grow skinny and the fronds thin.

        Add top soil or organic peat moss to the hole when you plant.

        Fertilize with granular palm fertilizer during spring, summer and least one application per season.

        Let the fronds drop off naturally as they brown. If you can't stand the look of a browned frond, you can cut it off, but leaving them on to fall off on their own benefits the palm as dying fronds send nutrients to new ones forming.

        Plant spacing

        Single trunk adonidias work in tighter areas planted 5 to 6 feet away from the house to give the fronds room to grow and prevent them from surface scraping damage.

        Multi-trunk palms need adequate room to spread out...the trunks will naturally bow causing the fronds to extend a bit further. Position the trunks so they won't be in the way once they gain some stature.

        These palms are also easy to grow in containers. Large pots or planter boxes where they'll grow happily for some years are the best choice. Once your palm outgrows a large container it can always be planted in the garden.
