Coconut Palm Tree

Coconut Palm Tree
Dwarf Green Malayan
Botanical Name: Cocos Nucifera

Coconut Palms are beautiful landscaping trees.
Coconut Trees are:
-High heat and drought tolerance
-Wind resistance and salt-tolerant

Contrary to popular belief, the term Dwarf does not refer to the overall, mature size that one of these trees will achieve. Dwarf refers to the size at which the tree will start to produce fruit (coconuts). A Green Malayan will begin to fruit at approximately 2-3 feet of grey wood.

**Coconut plants can definitely be grown in Central Florida! But they will require some care if there is a freeze. You will have to protect them. They can only take tempertures down to 32 degrees. Coconut plants will be injured and may be killed if temperatures drop below 32 degrees and they are unprotected.**

Mature Height: 30-40 feet
Sunlight: Full
USDA Zone: 9-11
