Queen Palm
 
Queen Palm
Syagrus romanzoffiana

The Queen is truly the king in Southern California. Extensive plantings are everywhere, by far the most popular palm. In fact the demand is so strong that thousands are imported from Florida and distributed through large retailers. The Syagrus romanzoffiana (also called Cocos plumosa) is perfect for our weather extremes. It takes the cold to 22 degrees, loves full sun, survives drought and can withstand dry hot winds. They look best when planted in well draining soil and fed regularly. Fronds yellow easily when planted in poor soil and nutrients are not available.
Queen Palms
Foxtail Farms has Queen Palms available in sizes from 15 gallon containers, 24" boxes and large field grown (balled and burlap). Field grown Queen Palms usually offer the best value when purchasing larger trees. Trees simply grow better in the ground, especially in fertile soil. Spring and summer are ideal times to dig and plant field grown Queens. The roots that are cut regenerate very quickly and growth is not greatly affected. Foxtail Farms offers delivery of field dug Queens.
