Few plants are easier to grow than the needle palm tree. The plant can adapt to nearly any soil type, will thrive in either full sun or shade, and can handle both wet and dry climates alike. The needle palm is originally found in the southeastern region of the United States. Despite the plant’s tropical appearance and warm native climate, needle palms are able to tolerate cold temperatures. Needle palm trees are not quick growing plants, but when they do reach their full size, they can be up to six feet tall by six feet wide.
- Needle palms are from the southeastern US, but are very cold hardy and adaptable.
- Needle palms are slow growing, but will eventually fill up a 6ft by 6ft space.
- The needle palm is virtually hands off once it has established itself in the ground.
“Growing needle palms is one of the easiest tasks for any gardener.”
