Bailey Palms grace the landscape with a commanding and majestic presence that provides a strong vertical statement of elegance unmatched in the palm kingdom. Their enormous, rigid fan leaves distinguish them from all other palm species, with colors ranging from medium dark green to a silvery blue green. At maturity they form a 20-foot-wide canopy and usually display a stout columnar trunk that resembles a stately classical column.
These palms are native to Cuba, growing in the savannahs and woodlands in the central and eastern provinces of the island. They are very slow growing; however, they can reach up to 65+ feet in overall height. In the natural rural countryside, their large fan leaves are used for weaving hats, baskets, and for roof thatch.
The bailey is well suited for tropical or warm subtropical climates, although it has not been verified by us, we have been told that they have been seen to survive north of central part of Florida.
We have sold all our small plants and focus only on our remaining large specimens for sale or keepsakes. This rare and magnificent palm is worth investing in for the long-term value it provides to your property.
