Bismarck palm

Bismarck is one of the most beautiful and desired fan palms for subtropical landscapes. Throughout our low desert areas this sun-loving spectacular palm is gaining popularity.  Its’ dramatic silver-blue leaves give fast shade and quick screening.  Bismarckia have a fairly wide spread, about 10 to 12 feet, so plant accordingly.  Growth rate in 5 years, from 3 feet planted, is about 15 - 18 feet high by 10 - 12 feet wide.  Regular watering and feeding are recommended for optimum growth. All of our Bismarcks are of the preferred Silver-Select® variety.  They are fairly cold hardy to the lower 20’s once established.

The Bismarck Palm grows to an average height of 20 to 30 feet, with some growing over 40 feet tall. The Bismarck Palm Tree is a slow grower, usually growing a half to 1 foot in height a year under optimal growing conditions. The Bismarck Palm enjoys full sun and space for its massive fronds. The palmate fronds of the Bismarck Palm can reach over 3 feet in diameter and are adorned with furry veins on the surface of the leaf. The Bismarck Palm Trees beautiful crown can spread over 15 feet on top of its stout trunk which can measure over 2 feet in diameter.

The Bismarck Palm should be watered at least 3 times a week, but if it was recently transplanted or repotted, it should be watered twice a day for the first thirty days. The Bismarck is known as a very temperamental Palm when it comes to being transplanted or repotted. Bismarck Palms are known to whither down and die when being transplanted or repotted without hydration in their root systems, so every opportunity should be used to keep the roots hydrated during this time. After the Bismarck Palm has established itself into the yard or new pot, it will vibrantly shoot out new fronds.
