3 Palms To Plant for a Fall Paradise

Posted by Jessica Downs on 10/11/2019

Fall Palm Planting

Fall is here, and the conditions are perfect for planting palms in your yard. The weather is nice again, and the soil is warm, which means your newly planted palms will have more time to establish a strong, healthy root system.

At Moon Valley Nurseries, we custom grow our palms to thrive in our desert region – meaning they are the best you can find and ready to be delivered and planted. Below are three palms that are perfect for planting in Arizona this fall.

Palms to Fit Any Landscape

Pygmy Date Palm

The Pygmy Date Palm is a great option to use when you need to fill those tight spaces in your landscape. This versatile dwarf palm has a slow growth rate and can develop into a small-sized palm topped with a dense head of fine-textured, curvy, bright green fronds. A fantastic option to add a tropical feel to your yard.

The Pygmy Date Palm is our most popular selling dwarf palm and for good reason. This fine, feather leaf palm can grow both indoors and outdoors. Pygmy Palms can grow in a variety of different soils, is drought-tolerant and requires low-to-moderate water use, once established.

Piru Queen Palm

Piru Queen Palms are prized for having a look that complements all styles of landscapes. Our Piru Queen Palms are grown from superior seedlings with better genetic traits, which gets you the hardiest palm you can find!

These palms are heat-tolerant and feature dark green fronds that grow into a fuller crown, helping add shade to your yard. Add curb appeal by planting these low-maintenance palms in the front yard as a focal point, lining a driveway to create a grand entrance, or around your pool for a tropical backdrop.

Mexican Fan Palm

The Mexican Fan Palm is a classic resort style palm tree that features a single trunk and is easy to grow in Arizona. It can handle cold weather and thrives in the sun. Our “cigar-cut” Mexican Fan Palms give a smooth texture around the trunk that highlights the deep green and unique colors of this palm tree.

Mexican Fan Palms are a stately addition to any landscape and mix well with both large and smaller sized palm trees. We carry all sizes from the small starter palms to the giant, instant resort-style palms for whatever your goals might be for your new yard.

Palm Design Tip: Add landscape lighting to palms to create a beautiful nighttime appearance while highlighting the attractive features of your palms.
