Montgomery Palms have the architecture of the Royal Palm with gray concrete trunks rising to green
crownshaft topped with beautifully arching feather-like fronds. In addition to this, however, they have the curving tropical grace of the Coconut Palm. Together with their moderate size and slender trunks, the combination of the architecture of the Royal Palm and the grace of the Coconut gives them the classic beauty of the Royal, but with a softer, more lovely and graceful look. The gray concrete-like trunks are regularly accented with beautiful dark rings and bright red fruits accent the dark green crown. The fronds may be as long as ten feet, but often are less. This palm is moderate in size. It usually grows up to about 30’-35’. Use it where the beauty of a Royal or Coconut is desired, but a smaller scale and size is required.
