Description of Phoenix canariensis

Phoenix canariensis is a tall palm (15 to 20 m high), its exotic looks and fast growth have made it very popular.

How to grow Phoenix canariensis

It needs sun, a rich soil, and regular watering in summer. It can also be grown in a container for several years, if it is well watered.

Be careful when you buy one, those with long leaves have been grown too fast in a greenhouse; prefer palms with shorter leaves and  a stout trunk.

Story time

Phoenix canariensis was introuced in France in 1864 by Viscount Vigier,  a photographer and founding member of the French Photographic Society. The fruit is edible but has an unpleasant taste.
