Christmas Palm Trees (Adonidia merrillii) are popular tropical palm trees prized for their beautiful fronds and ease of care. The Christmas Palm is named for the red seeds it produces when conditions are ideal. Adonidia merrillii loves full sun so place it by a pool, in a sunroom, or on your outdoor patio in the summertime heat and it will thrive! Native to the Philippines, Christmas Palm is sometimes referred to as Manila Palm. They are low maintenance and self cleaning so when a leaf dies, it drops on its own. Many people prefer Christmas Palm Trees for their pool deck because they don’t leave a mess of leaves in the water. They are relatively compact palms that are often used for tight spaces. Additionally, they are often found clumped together with two or three palms planted closely so that they grow in a more outward habit. When you buy your Adonidia Christmas Palm online, place it in a container outside for the summer and bring it indoors before first frost.
