Pindo Palm (Butia capitata)
The Pindo Palm, botanical name Butia capitate, is an easy to care for, small to medium evergreen palm tree that is perfectly suited for use in a rock garden, planted poolside or kept in a container. Easily recognized by its striking silver-green, graceful arching fronds, the Pindo Palm will fit in perfectly with contemporary, Mediterranean and tropical landscape styles. It is a cold-hardy, drought tolerant palm that thrives in full to partial sun environments, making it an excellent palm tree for Southwestern landscapes.
This Pindo Palm has a slow growth rate and will require low to moderate watering needs once established. Due to its slow growth rate, buy bigger palms grown and nurtured at our Moon Valley Nurseries farms. We grow these beautiful Pindo Palms in our local climate, in conditions that ensure thriving palms - we have these beauties available in a variety of sizes.
Dramatic foliage colors are sure to please the senses, no matter where you plant this Pindo palm tree. In the summer, it blooms beautiful yellow to reddish flowers that add to its year round interest. Nature provides. These yellow to reddish flower clusters will produce the sweet and edible Pindo fruit, which is often used to make jelly. It complements a variety of plants, so feel free to plant this palm in landscapes with Bird of Paradise, Canna and Hibiscus, for a colorful garden that is sure to attract pollinators and enhance the look and feel of your landscape.
