Queen Palm is a tall elegant pinnate leaf palm native from Brazil to northern Argentina. It is a common large palm in Florida landscapes and popular in many warmer regions. It is a relatively fast-growing palm with long graceful arching bright green fronds. Most of those in cultivation are likely of Brazilian origin and of limited cold hardiness. This selection from our palm guru friend Tom McClendon are seedlings from his tree from Uruguay in St. Marys Georgia and may be a bit more cold hardy and worth trying in areas just a bit too cold for the Queen Palms commonly available.
