Bismarck Palm    (Bismarckia nobilis)


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.
