We call it Palm Paradise because of the thousands or rare palms we carry at this nursery from all over the world that have grown from hand selected seeds from our own specimen stock at our nursery. We guarantee that you have never seen a selection of rare palms like this before!
Palm Paradise is helmed by Southern California native Jordan Scaparo, who is a third generation nursery grower. Jordan learned from his grandfather that if you loved the tree the tree will love you back. His grandfather opened up a nursery in New Jersey more than 85 years ago. Jordan's father helped at the nursery in New Jersey before he moved to Southern California in 1972. Finding that the selection of palms was limited, Jordan's father started growing his palms from seeds and when Jordan came of age he then opened up his own nursery called Woodland Nursery in 1999. This nursery was known throughout Southern California for their cultivation of palms that were nurtured from hand-selected seeds. Now in 2016, Jordan's family has joined the Moon Valley Nursery family bringing unbriadled knowledge and professionalism with them!
A few of the rare palm varieties we carry are the Alexander Palm (native to Australia), Fishtail Palm (Asia), Archontophoenix maxima (Australia), Kentia Palm (Australia), King Palm, Pindo Palm (South America), Canary Date Palm (Canary Islands) , Chilean Wine Palm (South America), Cuban Royal (Caribbean), Triangle Palm (Africa), and more.
All of the palms we feature at Palm Paradise have been grown in our local Southern California climate for decades, some have been growing since the 1800's! We even have some incredible specimens we've acquired or imported from tropical locations all over the globe.
In addition to our palms, we carry the rarest Aloe trees in Southern California. These slow growing Aloe trees have been growing at Palm Paradise for decades and we guarantee you have never seen anything like them before. They look like a tree from a Dr. Suess book and you'll be amazed when you see them. They are truly one-of-a-kind.
