Bismarck Palm

Bismarckia Nobilis

Bismarck Palm

A native from the Island of Madagascar off the southeastern coast of Africa, when provided with good moisture it produces a massive stout trunk with a very showy domed canopy and dense palmate leaves of bright silver-blue green leaves. Visually striking with great symmetry, works magnificent with darker green contrasting colors in the landscape. This palm may reach heights of 50-60 ft with a spread of 20 ft or more.

This palm seems to thrive in many kinds of soils, while growing and establishing itself it will require watering which helps improve the trunk thickness along with a good palm fertilizer. Prefers full sun although it works in partial shade conditions. Once it is established this palm is drought tolerant. This palm is not as susceptible to disease and nutritional deficiencies as many other palm species.  Our experience has resulted in greater sensitivity to transplanting trauma than with other species we sell.  Once transplanted, water daily with actual hose for a period of two to three weeks, and for an additional equal period with every other day…after transplanting a single bubbler will not suffice to survive. 

USDA Zones 10-11. Will tolerate some frost conditions for a very short period; however, you can expect damage from freezing temperatures.

Adaptable to various soils
Bismarck palms can thrive in a wide range of soil types, including acidic or alkaline soil
Excellent drainage
These palms prefer well-draining soil to avoid root rot, which can be detrimental to their health.
Careful planting
When planting a Bismarck palm, ensure not to cover any part of the trunk, as this can attract microorganisms that may harm the palm's health.
