8 Types of Palm Trees for Your SWFL Home

Real Estate Agent with Records Results!Real Estate F3290596


If you’re just starting your journey to buy a home in Southwest Florida or you’re newer to the area, you might be wondering… how many types of palm trees could there really be? In Southwest Florida and Florida generally, there are a huge variety, each with its own character and ambiance. Of course, you’re probably familiar with some of the more prevalent kinds. After all, a row of palm trees with the sunset in the background is an iconic Florida image.


Still, when you’re landscaping your new home (or an existing one too), you’ll probably want to know your options. Well, it just so happens that you know a SWFL Realtor that’s a resource on just about everything for our area, from home trends to palm trees. So without further ado, here are 8 gorgeous palm trees you can add to your SWFL home.


Bottle Palm Tree

If you’ve never seen a bottle palm, you’re in for a treat. These short, squat little palms have a distinct look that’s at once tropical and unique. They look especially outstanding paired together with some nice ground cover.


Areca Palm Tree

These palms are incredible for privacy, because even though they start out small, they grow to be huge. In fact, they can get to be about 15 to 20 feet tall and provide great shade and a hidden oasis for your SWFL home.


Chinese Fan Palm Tree

Fan palms of all types are rather widespread throughout the area. But when you buy your home here, if you need a nice, standard-looking palm, this is probably the way to go.


Coconut Palm Tree

Of course, we can’t leave off the legendary coconut palm. They can get pretty tall, providing that feel of paradise that Southern Florida is famous for. The coconuts are a plus, but they’re also salt tolerant as well.


Saw Palm

The scrub land throughout Southwest Florida is filled with saw palms. At the same time, residents also love to add one or two to the yards of their SWFL homes. They provide a nice bushy look that’s perfect as a backdrop.


Sago Palm

Something of a fern-like palm, this short palm might catch your eye. For a time, they were almost completely wiped out in the area, but are now making a comeback.


Travelers Palm

I just love the travelers palm. They’re distinctive and they can grow to be quite large. In a way, they might remind you of a lovely bird of paradise, but with their own look and feel.


Silver Bismarck Palm

Another more squat palm, this tree still can encompass a good deal of space in your yard. But let me tell you, when you buy a home in Southwest Florida and add this one, the brighter silver is a real attention getter. From Sarasota to Marco Island, these will look awesome.
