Exotic Palm Trees In A Pot
Majesty Palm Trees Bring That Tropical Feel
Majesty Palm Trees Make Great Houseplants and might be one of many options to add an exotic and tropical feel to your outdoor area if you live in a warm climate. When grown outside, potted palm trees have the same light, temperature, soil and moister requirements as they do when grown in the ground.
Since fast-growing palms like the Majesty Palm Trees Make Great Houseplants but will outgrow containers quickly, choose slow-growing palms that should be able to remain in the same container for two to four years. After that time, repot them into a larger container.

If you’re into large full palms here are a couple beautiful palms I couldn’t pass up:
The Mexican Blue Palm is a Winner!
Grown for its striking foliage color, Brahea armata commonly know as Mexican Blue Palm, is an erect palm adorned with a thick solitary trunk covered by fibrous leaf bases and topped by a crown of gorgeous, blue-green, fan-shaped fronds, 5 ft. long (150 cm).
The slow growing, sun-loving Brahia armata, commonly known as the Blue Hesper or Mexican Blue, is native to Baja Mexico and uniquely suited to thrive with minimal water in the dry climate of Southern California.
Brahea Armata AKA Mexican Blue Palm
The Hesper’s prominent canopy and artic blue leaves stand out among other plants, lending a dramatic aesthetic and rustic appeal to any landscape arrangement. In maturity the Brahea armata sports a large diameter greyish-white trunk that is often swollen at the bottom.
The yellow flowering stem, or inflorescence, extends well beyond the leaf bases adding additional flare to an already impressive canopy. The Mexican Blue makes for a dramatic focal point in any landscape and vividly contrasts against a backdrop of green trees.
Named for one of the Greek Hesperides who lived on an enchanted Island, this stunning palm is worthy of its exotic title. Overall, a very hardy palm perfect for Southern.
Mexican Blue Palm, also commonly called Blue Hesper Palms, are quite slow growers maing them valuable and sought after.
The fronds are a striking bluish silver to bluish green color, while it may take many years, these palms can get up to approximately 30-50′ in height and 15-20′ wide at maturity.
Palm Tree That Produces Fruit
The cream colored flowers bloom in early spring with the flower stalks extending out from the crown and hang downward. The stalks are long and get up to 15′ or more in length.
Seeds will ripen during summer months with fruit starting out yellow and turning a dark brown. While the fruit is edible, they arenot tasty, however the seeds can be roasted and consumed if desired.
They are found along the west coast of the U.S. as far north as Seattle, Washington and western British Columbia. Long term survival in these areas will require planting it in a warm, sunny spot.
You will find these palms more commonly grown in the southwest U.S. such as Phoenix, Arizona, southern Nevada and throughout California.
This could be the perfect disaster!
These palms grow very slowly, especially when young. They achieve 6 inches of growth per year which is perfect if you have a big back yard to decorate this beauty with and just want it to display.
This would be off-putting for folks wanting a palm that’s faster growing and didn’t want to wait years or even decades for it to grow to full size. In that case, they should look for another palm that grows faster.
The Phoenix Roebelenii Palm Tree is one of the most popular palms.

A widely cultivated species, Phoenix roebelenii is a dwarf evergreen palm tree with a slender trunk topped with a dense crown of fine textured, lustrous green, gracefully arching fronds.
Each compound pinnate leaf is up to 3 feet long and divided into many linear leaflets. Although this palm is usually single stemmed, it may develop several trunks.
Where they’re Typically Placed
The Phoenix Roebelenii is one of our most popular palms. It’s perfect around pools, patios and courtyards. Amazingly, it is also container friendly – bring it indoors when the weather turns cold.
Slow growing, the Roebelenii (image above on right) can reach up to 6 feet tall which is perfect for any backyard landscape, if it’s in the right climate. Many landscapers use it in multi-trunk cluster groupings, or in between or under larger palms.
Easy to grow
Pygmy Date Palm is hardy to 26 F (-3C). Popular as a container plant in northern gardens and conservatories. Great as a potted plant indoors where it will add a beautiful tropical touch.
The Roebelenii palm can be grown in partial shade/partial sun, requires minimal water and is adaptable to a wide range of soils. Hardy, flexible and lovely, it’s easy to understand why it is a top seller.
You’ll want to bring it in come winter if you live in Northern America, Seattle, Washington or at least get it under cover. The good news is we found a species that can grow in cold climate.
“Pygmy date palm, the botanical name Phoenix roebelenii, is a small to medium-sized palm originating from the Yunnan Region of Chine, Laos, and Vietnam. It is a slow-growing palm that reaches a height of 6-20 feet when grown outdoors with a canopy that spreads about 10 feet wide.
But indoors, these palms don’t usually grow beyond 6 or 7 feet, earning themselves the name Dwarf Date Palm. These palms are perfect for growing in containers and make excellent patio plants. They are also widely cultivated as landscape accents.” By Milo Mason 05/26/2022
Pygmy Date Palm likes to grow in the warmth of the tropics and sub-tropics, but it can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. It just needs different types of care for different climates.
You can confidently grow your palm outdoors in a garden in warmer regions. But in colder areas, it’s better to pot your dwarf palm in a container, so you have the option of moving it indoors in winter. Alternatively, you can grow it as a houseplant in any climate; just keep it away from cold drafts.
Phoenix roebelenii likes warm, humid environments. But once established, it is somewhat drought-tolerant. Just don’t let it become exposed to cold drafts, and you should be fine.
Thank You for stopping by, I hope you took something away from this, Palms are great to look at!
