Phoenix Canariensis

Phoenix Canariensis
(Canary Island Date Palm)

Phoenix Canariensis or namely Canary Island Date Palm has proved to be especially hardy in inland districts, tolerating the heat and dry conditions without setback. It is especially adaptable since it can be grown in temperate, subtropical and tropical regions and in coastal as well as inland areas.

It is very frost-hardy and will thrive in quite poor soils although it does not succeed where the drainage is poor. The stout, woody trunk grows up to 20 meter tall and is crowned by long, pinnate, light green fronds which are spiny at the base. Large clusters of golden fruits are especially colourful in inland districts.
