About the Pindo Palm:

The Pindo Palm Tree, sometimes known as the Jelly Palm, is a hardy feather palm tree variety.

The tree has a large trunk and fronds 6 to 8 feet long. I usually reaches a height of 15-20 feet in most areas although it can reach a height of 30 feet.

It stands up very well to the cold but temperatures below 5 degrees will cause damage.

Due to its large size and long fronds, it makes a nice specimen plant that provides a real tropical look.  For that reason we recommend the Pindo Palm Tree for Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Kiawah SC and surrounding areas.
