Queen palm trees are stately, single-trunked palms topped with glossy, bright pinnate leaves that droop softly in a graceful canopy. Bright orange dates hang in ornamental clusters. Queen palm trees are popular landscape trees in warm regions.
Queen palms (Syagrus romanzoffiana) are tall, beautiful trees, but not everyone can grow them. These palms thrive only in U.S Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9b through 11. Queen palm trees grow to 50 feet (15 m.) tall and their canopies can spread to 25 feet (7.6 m.). Like many tall palms, the trunk is straight and branchless, but crowned with a canopy of palm leaves. As if the majesty of these palms was not enough to win hearts, queen palm trees also produce large plumes of miniature blossoms in summer. These flowers mature into bright orange fruits by winter.
