The Mule Palm, botanical name X Butiagrus nabonnandii, is a hybrid of two popular palms, the Pindo Palm and Queen Palm. It has the best traits of both plants '“ it is extremely cold hardy and can thrive from the coastline to the desert. If you are looking to bring the look of the tropics home, this heat-loving palm can do it. It features green feathered fronds that spread wide enough to create a relaxing shade area in your yard, too.
We like to plant the Mule Palm a lot of different ways. They can add instant curb appeal whether planted as a lawn specimen, near the driveway, or along a fence. Another excellent way to get your yard noticed for all the right reasons is to install nighttime landscape lighting. Highlighting this palm with lights is sure to set the WOW factor to high.
We like to give them plenty of room to grow so that we can enjoy the view of this beautiful palm. Mule Palm trees thrive in a location that receives full sun exposure. In fact, the less shade, the better! Once established, they have little to moderate water requirements.
Mule Palm trees can be harder to find. The good news is that Moon Valley Nurseries custom-grows them so that we can assure their quality. Our growing process allows us to offer these superior palms to you. They have a slow to moderate growth rate, so buy as big as you can if you want to enjoy one of the most exciting hybrid palms to be available in quite some time!

Hardy PalmWe lost a few palms years ago so this year we wanted something hardy and easy to grow. These fit the bill. They take little way in the care of the trees, and they just seem to grow and do their thing. We use the Moon Dust Fertilizer and Palm Juice and they really seem to like that. We're happy with this purchase from Moon Valley Nurseries.
