This extremely popular and easily grown small landscape palm can be seen in most tropical locations through out the world. It looks like a miniature royal palm, with its green crown shaft, gray trunk and long full fronds. Single trunk specimens work almost anywhere since they won't grow too large or too fast to overwhelm most locations.The adonidia is easy care...it's self-cleaning, meaning the spent fronds just fall off by themselves, a big low-maintenance plus. And adonidias are pretty much pest-free.
Performing best in full sun, a Christmas palm tree can tolerate partial shade. Add organic peat to the soil.The plants require supplemental water as they establish, but once mature, these trees can withstand short periods of drought. They are also quite tolerant of saline soils.
