One look at the Mexican Blue Palm is all it takes to fall in love with it. Native to Baja California, a peninsula of Mexico, Brahea armata (botanical name) has a thick trunk and dramatic silvery blue fan-shaped foliage that adds a stunning presence in any landscape. These rare, harder to find palms are available at Big Tex Tree Nurseries and we love to plant them for adding impressive vertical effects in large gardens or as eye-catching street trees that are sure to add curb appeal. Use them as a focal point in any landscape and light them up with nighttime landscape lighting to take your landscapes ‘wow’ factor to the next level! Adding to its notable features are the long arching spikes of creamy white flowers that appear in late spring and summer, dressing up this palm in style.
Mexican Blue Palms are extremely hardy. They can handle the heat and wind and for the best blue coloring, they love to grow in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure. They have a slow growth rate and once established are drought tolerant with only low to moderate water requirements. Anyone looking to break up the greenery in their landscape and add a striking color contrast is sure to appreciate the spectacular foliage of these blue palms.
Plant them anywhere on your property and watch as they add curb appeal and value to your property. These are the perfect companions to yucca and a wide range of other trees and plants.

Our professional planting and delivery service will get any size order planted and treated with our specialized Super Palm Juice and Moon Dust Fertilizer!
