Phoenix Canariensis, "Canary Island Date Palm"

temp-post-image

Native to the Canary Islands, the Phoenix canariensis is one of the most impressive species in the palm world due to its massive structure. These trees are very slow growing but ultimately can reach upwards of 60' in height with a head that can span 40'-50' in width. Trees have feather shaped fronds reaching 18' in length or more and are deep green in color. Mature specimens of these trees typically have the old fronds cleaned from the trunk up to the crown of the tree where tree trimmers often sculpt the crown to resemble a pineapple. We have an extensive variety of these trees in stock at our yards at all times, with new trees being acquired weekly, please contact us to discuss current availablity.
