The queen palm, or Syagrus romanzoffiana, grows to be up to 60 feet high. It is most hardy in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones of 9 to 11.
Queen palm trees feature the traditional palm shape, with the addition of arching fronds. Fronds can be up to 15 feet long. In the summer, white flowers bloom on the tree, and during the winter, orange fruits grow on the tree. The queen palm generally needs acidic soil and warm conditions, as it can be damaged in freezing weather. While some places consider the queen palm invasive, it makes a good tree for both commercial and residential planting.
