Product Description

A relative of the date palm, Phoenix canariensis 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 and be followed by reddish-yellow fruits.

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 garden position in the UK, although will cope with temperatures down to -6C (21F).

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 (5').

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

Supplied as a pair of mature potted plants, approx 70-80cm tall (3ft) tall and in 15cm diameter pots, ready to plant outside from the end of April. 

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

Plant Information

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 Guide

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 (1 inch) 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 (2in) 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.

6 plants arrived in one box squashed and looking very bedraggled on opening!
Very disappointing after I recently praised the packaging from you. Also the pairs of plants were very ill matched such as one being half a metre taller than tother! Others arrived with leaves already dead or dying-not a happy customer in view of the amount of money I have spent with you in such a short time!!! Ray Ashley

After a long conversation & bad customer service; as most of my order was picked wrongly by the nursery & squashed into a very small box leaving the plants crushed & broken. I was told that I hadn't understood what I had ordered & that I was basically wrong. I then had an email where they did refund due to the damage caused by the packing so overall they have tried to put it right & will try again with them.
Product:
they were not what I ordered, I ordered Fan Palms & again they were crushed by the packers. This is due to the supplier's bad packing & wrong item sent
