Why Medjool Palms
In the Palm of your Hand

There's nothing that makes a landscape feel more relaxing than a beautiful palm tree, but they are not all created equal! In addition to the wide variety of looks of the various species, each have their own recommended use, care requirements and concerns.

The Medjool Palm is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful trees which is why humans have cultivated them for over 6,000 years beginning in early Phoenicia! As a matter of fact, the name Phoenicia translates into "Land of Palms".

Interestingly, the Medjool "palm tree" is NOT A TREE, and are in actuality a true palm.

Why is the Medjool Date Palm highly desirable? There are a few reasons:

Aesthetic: Medjool Palms have a large canopy that is dense and lush. They are truly a beautiful specimen of palm that have been admired worldwide for thousands of years.

Shade & Privacy: The established Medjool Palm provides an incredible source shade and privacy. Whether you have a backyard pool or just enjoy being in your neighborhood backyard without neighbors being able to watch you, a canopy of connected Medjools can provide ample obstruction and privacy for your home.

Durability: Mature medjool date palms can withstand temperatures falling to several degrees below freezing for short periods and are known to grow in high temperature climate areas making them idea for Houston & Texas in general. They can live up to 200 years old so they will often be enjoyed by multiple generations of your family! Once a medjool is well-established, they are very drought-hardy and can survive extended periods without water. They are also very tolerant to high levels of salt.
