Phoenix canariensis (Canary Island Date Palm) in 15cm Pot, Height 65cm

14.99 “Price excl. VAT: 13.21

Best known as the Canary Date Palm, this striking plant will bring instant architecture to your conservatory or patio. The magnificent, stiffly upright leaves arch elegantly from a short, columnar trunk. Native to the Canary Islands, Phoenix canariensis enjoys a sheltered garden position, but will cope with temperatures down to -6C. It also makes an excellent evergreen specimen plant for the patio or conservatory, where it is well suited to growing in containers. Height: 1.5m when restricted in containers. If grown naturally in glasshouse borders this palm can reach 5m height and 3m spread.

Grow Canary Island date palm in containers or sheltered borders in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. If growing date palms in patio containers use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2 or 3. Choose a container only slightly bigger than the pot supplied. Phoenix canariensis plants can be placed outdoors on sunny patios, or in a conservatory or greenhouse. In all but the mildest areas they will need to be brought under cover for the winter.
