Their wide growth habit also makes them a perfect candidate for using them as the greatest tropical hedge we can find! Anyway you choose to plant them in your landscape is a sure fire way to add instant curb appeal!

Pindo Palms are very durable and they love to grow in our hot Houston weather, planted or placed in an area where there is full sun to partial sun exposures. They are cold hardy too and once established, are drought tolerant with low to moderate water requirements. Since they have a slow growth rate, they are commonly grown in containers, and in the summer, it blooms with beautiful yellow to reddish flowers that adds even more year round interest! Yes, the look of the Butia capitate is what helps to set it apart from many other palms and we often use them as companions to Hibiscus, Plumbago and Tropical Bird of Paradise plants to make a colorful landscape scene everyone will love!
