The Q&A Archives: What is?

Question: My husband just bought a 15 g coconut palm tree. Can u tell me something about it? How tall is it get and can u put it in your front yard. How is it different than any other palm tree. Just want info about it. How much watering does it need. Thanks Tina I live in Clearwater Florida in the Tampa Bay area.

Answer: Tina,

Coconut palm grows to 40-60 feet tall but may be a little cold tender for your area in some years. I suggest you contact your local County Extension Office to confirm its adaptability to your area.
