Palm Tree for Sale! {Wordless Wednesday with Linky}


This was a ‘STOP THE CAR!!’ moment, I was in awe.

I {big puffy} heart palm trees and in turn, any location in which they grow #travellove

So while my family and I were in Florida and I saw that you could buy Palm trees at Rona?

INSANE!!! {now it seems kinda obvious, but I’d never seen one for sale before}

Oh what I’d give to have been able to buy one, just to say I did. Instead I settled for throwing myself out the car window to take a photo. Must be a Canadian thing … eh? πŸ™‚





  1. my parents have a palm tree in the middle of their court yard in BC. I am still in awe when I see them “in the wild”. πŸ™‚

    1. No Danielle, is that the Palm capital? πŸ™‚
      I’d love to one day though – I hear it’s beautiful!!

  2. Nifty πŸ™‚ My neighbors put in a number of those palms around their house. We have smaller one in a pot and a couple others of a different variety (queen maybe-fan type leaves) in the ground. I had planted a couple of date palms started in a friends compost she gave me when she moved to Arizona, She should have taken them with her they did fine without water but when I planted them they drowned in the rain as did the king palm here and next door. I met someone once who had grown a palm from a coconut in his house that was pushing against his ceiling. Not sure whether any palms would grow in Canada. Perhaps tropical vs desert palm. Seems some palms can take rain and occasional frost but others don’t.

    1. From a coconut in his house?! Seriously!!
      So, If I make my house very humid and light…
      I’m thinking about doing it!! lol

  3. oh I want a palm tree!! Of course it would totally die in my yard… what with a palm trees inability to survive -40 and all πŸ™

  4. I have always loved palm trees as well. Growing up I always loved seeing the palm trees when we would go on vacation (from Kentucky…no palm trees) Now I live in Florida and I have my very own palm trees in my yard. After living in Florida for twelve years, I am still in awe of the palm trees!

  5. I have the same live of palm trees. They are my favorite thing to see when I travel. It’s how I know I am on holidays. I also love to see lizards. That makes me happy.


    1. Yes, Paula – that’s almost odd to me as well.
      I love pointing things out when traveling, stuff you’d never see at home!

  6. I totally wouldn’t have thought you could buy a big ol’ palm tree either! cool!!

    I know one of the people in my neighbourhood have these big wood and metal palm trees in their backyards here..but they have a crazy fancy shmancy backyard…looks neat though!!

  7. Palmtrees are so common here I never realized how much of a new sight it must be for some people

  8. The things that excite us Canadians..

    At Canadian Tire I see that they’re selling hibiscus trees, those are the beautiful flowers that smell like heaven in Hawaii. I’m still dumbfounded because I’m pretty sure they would die once the end of August came around. They were already looking pretty sad at the store.

    1. What!!!!
      LOVE HIBISCUS as well! {yes, I’m shouting right now}.
      I need to check this out and give it a try – off to Canadian Tire I go tomorrow!!

  9. Aren’t they so cool? I saw my first one while on vacation in California and just wanted to dig one up and bring it home with me lol.

    1. Ha, Theresa – I was the same way.
      Only seen on TV, I think I started at the first one I saw for about 15 minutes.
      …and fell in love. *sigh* πŸ™‚

  10. I love palm trees but there aren’t any around here. I’ve also never seen them for sale before! Wonder if it would make it through the winter with snow and all lol.


    1. Exactly!
      When I retire, I don’t have a destination in mind at all, except ‘where palm trees grow’.

    1. You are kidding right?! #shock
      Speaking of, I guess it would be odd for some to see so many snow shovels for sale year round! lol

      1. ok, so you are not kidding…
        where do you live, curious where they sell horses in Walmart! lol

  11. Being from the Caribbean I really feel for that tree. Somebody needs to get it a home and put its roots in the ground. Its like taking a fish out of water and putting it to sit at the curb with a chain and collar.

    1. Awe – I hear ya Jillian. They are gorgeous, I’m hoping it was taken home very quickly!

    1. Always! I think Palm-Photos take up the bulk of my pics when I travel. Well, that and my toes on vacay….

    1. Yes, I have friends that would never live where palm trees grow. Myself on the other hand? As long as it’s humid, the hotter, the better. I’m not a cold-weather person at all.

  12. It is a little odd to see one lonely Palm for sale, anywhere, this cracked me up πŸ™‚

  13. I love Palm Trees. We have palmetto trees galore here in the palmetto state πŸ™‚

    1. Admitting that I had to google what ‘palmetto trees in the palmetto state’ was…. *sigh*

      1. Side note: I’d never seen those kind of palms before until we went to Florida. I knew they looked ‘different’ than all the others, but had no idea what they were called. So, thanks!!

  15. LOL, that’s amusing to me. We have a palm tree growing in our front yard, and I consider them a nuisance! Always need trimming, and the tall ones get to be a PITA to care for!

    1. Is that right Michelle? I just assumed they were entirely self-sufficient and hardly shed… hmmm.
      Good thing I didn’t buy it! lol

      1. Well, I know they are pretty hardy. I mostly ignore mine, and it refuses to die, but it holds onto dead, ugly leaves and then the neighbors complain and we have to go at it with a machete. I have a short one, luckily, but my mom had some tall ones in her backyard, and she had to hire guys to climb them and do the trimming. She refuses to get them for the yard in her new house, LOL. I prefer oleander — still tropical, grows like a weed, but with pretty flowers. πŸ™‚ But then, I’ve lived in the subtropics my whole life, so I get to be choosy.

  16. Hah that’s too funny. I would like to go buy a palm tree an bring it back here to Utah on the roof of my car haha.We all know palms don’t grow in northern utah, only the very most southern and maybe not even there. It would be worth a fwa laughs anyway

  17. I love palm trees too! Odd thing is, there is a landscaping business near us that sells them. I would love to get one, *but* they wouldn’t survive the New Jersey winters. πŸ™

  18. I love palm trees. One of the first things I noticed when I first went to Florida was the palm trees outside the airport. And that warm humid Florida air πŸ™‚ I miss it there πŸ™

  19. Palm trees would not last long here with the kids climbing them,and maybe falling on thier head1
