Special Attributes

The Pindo Palm, also known as the Jelly Palm, is a hardy, beautiful feather palm that has long arching leaves that curve towards the ground from atop a thick, stout trunk. The leaves are gray-green to blue-gray in color and can grow from 5 to 10 feet long. The palm produces yellow inflorescences that are followed by tasty orange fruit that is used for making jelly, hence one of its common names: Jelly Palm.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to a height of around 12 in colder regions and 20 feet in subtropical regions, and a width of about 10 to 15 feet, the Pindo Palm is ideal for use as a specimen or clustered in groups in landscape borders. A fine accent tree to frame corners or accent entryways in home foundation plantings and outdoor living spaces. Plant in rows to line a drive, street or property line. Really nice around swimming pools and other bodies of water. Also suitable for growing in large containers that can be situated on sunny patios and decks. A fine addition to rock and tropical-look gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing: 18 or more for space between trees




Cultural Preferences

The Pindo Palm is easy to grow in a wide variety of soils provided there is good drainage and full sun to light shade. We've had no problems growing it in the clay-based soil we have here in Georgia. That said, we suggest amending compacted clay generously at a 50/50 ratio with bagged top soil, sand and/or small gravel. As with many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy soil or standing water is problematic. So just make sure the planting area drains well.
