About Adonidia Merrillii
The Christmas Palm grows quickly to about 6 feet (1.83 m), then slows, retaining its shape until it reaches its maximum height of 25 feet (7.62 m). It supports stiff, arching green leaves that are 4-5 feet long. In mid-summer, it produces small clusters of cream-colored flowers and green fruit. In winter, the mature fruit turns bright red. It is sensitive to frost and freezing temperatures, so it's best planted in a container that can be moved indoors during the winter.
