Great Trees

Trees and palms can have an enormous and wonderful impact on our landscapes and gardens. Shade trees can reduce ambient temperatures and energy bills. Specimen and ornamental trees can add interest, color, and texture. Fragrant trees can make garden experiences even more enjoyable.

Palm trees can add a dramatic and tropical appearance to our landscapes. There are many hardy palms that many of our customers have never been exposed to. Many of these are quite unique and hard to find. Some of these include the Alexander, Bottle, Buccaneer, Dioon Edule & Spinulosum, European Fan, Florida Thatch, Foxtail, Hurricane, Montgomery, Pindo, and Spindle.

Riverland has a great selection of hardy and unique and trees that are comfortable with our SW Florida environment. Many of these should be used more in our landscapes. We have planted many examples of some of our favorite trees include Allspice, Avocado, Bay Rum, Carambola, Dahoon & East Palatka Holly, Dwarf Poinciana, Golden Rain, Guava, Ipe Tabebuia, Japanese Blueberry, Japanese Fern, Joy Perfume, Lychee, Mahogany, Mango, Mulberry, Olive, Pigeon Plum, Sapote, Verawood, Weeping Bottlebrush, Weeping Podocarpus, Yellow Poinciana and more.

Come and visit our three acres of beautiful demonstration gardens to see what these wonderful trees actually look like.
