Product Information

This tropical, architectural beauty will add that holiday feel to your patio for years to come! With its spectacular fan-shaped foliage, Phoenix canariensis will provide an incredibly dramatic impact to your garden.

Amazingly, this superbly exotic plant thrives in the UK and is winter hardy to -6C! Abundant across the Canary Islands and Spain, it's perfect for patio pots and will provide a stunning centrepiece for your garden.

Your palm will grow rapidly to form a thick trunk, with the distinctive, deep-green leaves fanning out above to form wonderful shadows on your patio this summer. You'll truly feel as if you've been transported to the Canary Islands!

As soon as your palm arrives, you'll be able to achieve an instant Mediterranean feel - we supply a 4-year-old plant in a 5L pot, ready to be placed wherever you want for immediate results, no need to wait!

Please note: 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.

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 (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.
