Ponce de Leon Boulevard Gets New Look with Addition of Alexander Palm Trees

Ponce de Leon Boulevard is getting a facelift. Hundreds of new Alexander palm trees, a species widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions all over the world, are being planted in the median of Ponce between Red and LeJeune roads, giving a new look to the scenic stretch of roadway, a fair portion of which parallels the University of Miami’s Coral Gables campus.

In all, some 358 Alexander palms—or Archontophoenix Alexandrae—will be planted, including some in the median that fronts the UM campus. The new trees are part of a streetscape beautification project recently approved by Coral Gables commissioners.

The project is scheduled for completion this week. UM, which has a Development Agreement with Coral Gables, agreed with city officials that a facelift for Ponce would be a benefit to the institution and residents, and will contribute about $60,000 to the landscape improvements in front of its campus. Coral Gables will maintain the improvements.
