Product Information

Something impressive for your garden - a big and exotic palm tree with spreading deep green leaves that arch with elegance from a stout trunk.

The Phoenix Palm is an undeniable talking point, stretching up to more than 12m when in its native Canary Islands - but do not fret as it will remain manageable in UK gardens, rarely exceeding heights of 2m. Plus, during a hot summer, you can see drooping bunches of creamy-yellow flowers.

Add this beauty to your patio or garden to create a holiday feel for years to come - instantly conjuring up scenes of a tropical paradise, where the huge leaves waft on the sea breeze.

Holding a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, the Canary Island Date Palm makes an excellent evergreen specimen plant for the patio or conservatory. Phoenix canariensis enjoys a sheltered position in the UK, will tolerate low temperatures, but will not survive freezing conditions.

While your palm tree will be tolerant of dry conditions when fully established, in very hot, dry weather it will need to be watered every day along with the rest of your plants.

Supplied as a mature potted plant, roughly 175-200cm tall in a 17L pot, ready to plant.

Top Tips

  • Despite looking like desert palms and being drought tolerant, to get best results, water them really well in spring & summer - do not let dry out.
  • In colder spots, bring in for winter, or tie fronds up together in a bundle to protect the centre of the palm.
  • If you're lucky enough to get shoots at the base of Phoenix canariensis, these can be arefully detached, along with any roots, and used for propagation. Pot each shoot in an 8cm (3 inch) pot of the standard potting mixture, place it in bright filtered light and water it sparingly-just enough to keep the mixture barely moist. After new top growth indicates that the shoot is well rooted, treat the young plant in the same way as a mature Phoenix canariensis palm.

Care Information

  • A slowly growing tree, Phoenix canariensis is easy to grow and care for .
  • Thriving in a sheltered site in full sun, with some shade at midday the Phoeninx Palm is best grown on the Patio in a large pot and brought under cover in the winter.
  • When in growth, watering moderately and feed with a balanced fertiliser once a month at half strength. Water sparingly in winter.
  • If the plant becomes pot bound, pot on into containers 2.5cm larger when new growth starts in spring, using a compost with good drainage. In years when re-potting is not carried out, topdress by removing 5cm of old compost from the top of the pot and replacing with fresh.
  • Pruning will only be needed to remove old fronds, which hang below horizontal. Do not remove those growing upright since this may slow the growth and reduce the palm vigor - remember that this palm has spines and sharp edges; use extreme caution when handling.
