The Q&A Archives: What is a Ball Palm Tree

Question: At my local Home Depot store they are selling a Ball Palm Tree. Iike the look and want to plant in North Florida. Do you know what the correct name is for this palm tree? Will this work well in N. FL
Thank you, Harry Hoffman

Answer: I've researched my list of common names and cannot find a reference for a ball palm tree. This might be a regional name for a commonly grown tree in Florida but it does not show up on my cross reference. If you can find another name or if you can compare it to other palms in your local area, we may be able to help identify the palm in question. Sorry I can't be of more help.
