Canary Island Date Palm

Phoenix canariensis

Canary Island Date palms are very popular for their formal aspect in the landscape, which complements the Mediterranean style architecture. This is one of the most massive palms and will need a lot of space to grow. There is no finer tree to line streets and avenues. When used as a large courtyard specimen, the large canopy stretching up to forty feet with up to 100 leaves, begins to coalesce and create its own pavilion effect.
