Phoenix sylvestris

Silvester Palm, Toddy Palm, Wild Date Palm
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Origin: India
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A large, fast growing, and very ornamental species that is actually quite rare in cultivation. As with so many species of Phoenix, many plants lurking in botanic gardens or collections under this name are actually hybrids with little resemblance to the true silver date palm, or, even worse, are simply misnamed P. canariensis. Its tall trunk is much more slender than that of P. canariensis, and its very full and dense crown has elegantly recurving, grayish, plumose leaves. It is as easy to grow as any Phoenix and will adapt to temperate as well as tropical conditions.
