Zamia Coontie Palm Tree

Alternative Views:

The Coontie Palm Tree is very similar to its cycad relatives, the Cardboard Palm (Zamia fufuracea) and the Sago Palm Tree (Cycas revoluta). The Coontie palms are popular landscape plants in the South and grow along the seaboard coast, where the Sago Palm is salt water tolerant. Full sun can burn the Coontie Palm, but light shade will make it grow vigorously in sandy acid soils. The Coontie Palm Tree is cold hardy in zones 8 through 11, and the evergreen fern-like leaves make the Coontie Palm Tree a top choice for growing in containers inside or for that tropical flair near a pool or courtyard. The Coontie Palm Tree is a native plant to FL and grows in a naturalized stage in several southern states. The Coontie Palms are rugged and tough being drought resistant and untouched by insects and disease.

William Bartram, the famous American botanist and explorer discovered the Zamia Palm tree growing in Central Florida on an expedition in the year 1773. William Bartram wrote page 160 in his book Travels. The Zamia pumila the Erythryna corallodendrum (Cardinal Spear), and the Cactus opuntia, grow there in great abundance in perfection. The first grows in pine forests, in tufts or clumps, a large conical strobile disclosing, its coral red fruit which appears singularly beautiful amidst the deep green fern-like pinnate leaves. William Bartram description for Zamia (Coontie) palm trees, Zamia pumila is vivid and accurate even 233 years past. Zamia (Coontie) palm trees thrive as outside plants, Zones 9-11, also as containerized palm trees for that tropical look. Clumps of Zamia pumila can easily divide to form real plants or the seeds can be planted to grow new Zamia (Coontie) palm trees that are fast growing.

Coontie Palms June 3, 2015
Reviewer: Tim Brennan from Maitland, FL United States  
My order took a little while to arrive because i was told the acceptable inventory of plants was too low.  It was worth the wait.  The price and the quality of the plants was very good.  I would order again.
