Full Product Details

Product Information

A relative of the date palm, Phoenix canariensis (otherwise known as Phoenix palm) is a large palm tree, with spreading deep green leaves arching elegantly from its attractive, stout trunk. During a hot summer, drooping bunches of creamy-yellow flowers may appear.

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 enjoy a sheltered position in the UK, tolerating low temperatures, but will need some help to survive freezing conditions.

The Phoenix Palm is undeniably impressive and can grow to more than 12m in its native Canary Islands. Fortunately, here in the UK and when restricted in a container, it reaches a much more manageable height of 1.5m.

Add this tropical beauty to your patio or garden to create a real holiday feel for years to come - instantly conjuring up scenes of a tropical paradise, where its huge leaves waft airily in the sea breeze and you can almost hear the sea lapping at the shore.

Supplied as a single, mature potted plant, approximately 60-80cm tall in a 14cm pot, ready to plant outside from the end of April.

Please note: While your Canary Island Date Palm 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.

'I have just received a pair of Phoenix Palms from you. They are stunning, at least as big as advertised and exceptional value for money. My first time - but I'll be back for more.' - SC, June 2015

Top Tips

  • Despite looking like desert palms and being drought tolerant, to get best results, water them really well in spring and 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 carefully 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 Phoenix Palm is best grown on the patio in a large pot and brought under cover in winter.
  • When in growth, water moderately and feed with a balanced fertiliser once a month at half strength. Water sparingly in winter.
  • If your Phoenix Palm 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, top-dress 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.
  • Phoenix canariensis enjoys a sheltered position in the UK, will tolerate low temperatures, but will not survive freezing conditions.
