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 (21F). It also makes an excellent evergreen specimen plant for the patio or conservatory, where it is well suited to growing in containers. The Phoenix Palm is undeniably impressive and holds a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 1.5m (5') when restricted in containers. If grown naturally in glasshouse borders this palm can reach 5m (16') height and 3m (10') spread.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info

Feed and water Phoenix plants regularly. Once established, Canary Island date palms are drought tolerant and plants grown outdoors will require less attention. Palms need little pruning. In spring remove dead or damaged foliage from lower down on the trunk. Wear gloves when pruning to avoid irritation to skin.

In winter, move container-grown plants to a frost-free position and keep the compost on the dry side. In mild areas Canary date palms may be overwintered outdoors if grown in sheltered borders and offered some winter protection with horticultural fleece. Repot container grown plants into increasingly larger pots as they increase in size.

Caution: Foliage may be irritant to skin.
