MORE INFORMATION ON THE MULE PALM TREE

The fabulous Mule Palm hybrid that we sell is one of the most elegant palms for colder climates and unites the cold hardiness of a Pindo Palm with the fast growth, elegance and large size of Queen Palm, resulting in a plant vaguely reminiscent of a coconut palm with Beautiful swaying fronds in the breeze


The Mule Palms have lush dark green leaflets that appear to be shiny in the sun and a light grey colored trunk or sometimes a purple colored trunk that becomes smooth as it matures with age.


NO THORNS ON THESE TREES TO POKE YOU


WHAT MAKES MULE PALMS SO COLD HARDY?

Mule Palm Trees obtain there cold hardiness by being grown on the Pindo Palm, which has a cold tolerance of around 10 Degrees Fahrenheit. While the Queen Palm will only tolerate temperatures around low 20's typically, when they are mixed together, we get a much hardier hybrid Mule Palm Tree that is for sale after a few years.


 We also even sell a Silver Mule Palm Tree that is made by combining the most cold hardy Queen Palm of all, The Silver Queen with the Pindo Palm Tree.


The Silver Queen Palm Tree is for sale at our Houston location as well and is cold hardy down to mid teen temperatures. This will make an even more cold hardy Mule Palm when cross pollinated with the Pindo. These Silver Mule Palms for sale are very limited quantities.
