There are 3800 known species of Palms throughout the world. Not all Palms grow in the Tropics. Some actually prefer cooler climates. The Palms listed on this page are commonly found throughout the State of Florida. Take a drive and take a look. You'll see these and many more...

Traveler's Palm (Ravenala Madagascariensis): This palm has fan-like leaves and is native to Madagascar. It is actually a relative of the Banana Tree and the Bird of Paradise. The name is derived from the fact that you can cut a stem from this plant and drink water from inside. Great for a thirsty traveler.

Washingtonia Palm (Washingtonia Robusta): Commonly seen at 40 to 50 feet buy capable of soaring to 80 feet in height, Washington Palm is quickly recognized as the much-used, straight, single-trunked street palm of years past. The lower leaves persist on the tree after they die, forming a dense, brown, shaggy covering below the living, bright green, broad, fan-shaped leaves, giving the common name of "Petticoat Palm".
