Phoenix canariensis, Canary Island Date Palm

Phoenix canariensis
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Canary Island Date Palm
Origin: Canary Islands
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Trees are vulnerable to ganoderma rot, lethal yellowing disease and leaf spot. . Dates are infinitely good for you and loaded with all kinds of vitamins, and date palms are lovely trees. If you want to start your own date palm, don't make the mistake of using pasteurized dates that have been steamed and preserved with chemicals.Get raw dates, that haven't been tampered with, they are usually available at health food stores. Break open the date and wash several pits. Plant them 1 to 3 inches deep in a starter mix. The time for germination varies, but it could be as long as two months, so don't give up in disgust. Keep the container in a warm place with good humidity. (Placing the entire pot inside a closed plastic bag is a good way to maintain high humidity.) In most plants the seed cotyledon that acts as a reservoir for food usually emerges from the top of the seed and sprouts directly out of the ground—not so with the date. It comes from the bottom and travels through the soil (like a root), coming up many inches later. When this root is about an inch long above the soil, it is time to transplant to a large tub of rich soil so the plant can grow on. In a few weeks the sprout will be joined by another, and presto, fronds! Your date is on its way. Give the plant plenty of sun, good moisture, and occasional feeding to keep it growing.

Phoenix dactylifera
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Date Palm
Origin: Middle East
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeEdibleSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Large, attractive, suckering, feather palm with greenish/grey leaves. It is also dioecious, meaning each plant is either male or female, not both, as in most palms. A very hardy palm, which will grow almost anywhere, apart from very cold areas, and whose only unconditional requirement is full sun.Not particular about soil and will even grow in poor soils. Prune suckers annually to create single trunk specimens. Although a drought resistant desert plant, the date palm has deep roots that typically seek out subterranean water sources. Provide regular irrigation for best look and faster growth. Propagation: By seed.

Phoenix reclinata, Reclinata Date Palm, Senegal Date, African Wild Date

Click to see full-size image
Phoenix reclinata
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Reclinata Date Palm, Senegal Date, African Wild Date
Origin: Africa, Zambia, Madagascar and the Comoro Islands
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

The Senegal Date Palm is variable in shape and form but tends to grow as clumps composed of multiple stems reaching 25 ft to 50 ft in height. These slender stems are covered with brown fiber and tend to curve away from the center of the clump in graceful arcs. The Senegal Date Palm readily hybridizes with the many other species of Phoenix that are found in the landscape. The fruit, called a date, follows the female flower. It is similar to the dates we buy in the store but is smaller and has less flesh and is mostly seed - they also don't taste very good although they are edible. Break open the date and wash several pits. Plant them 1 to 3 inches deep in a starter mix. The time for germination varies, but it could be as long as two months. Keep the container in a warm place with good humidity. (Placing the entire pot inside a closed plastic bag is a good way to maintain high humidity.) In most plants the seed cotyledon that acts as a reservoir for food usually emerges from the top of the seed and sprouts directly out of the ground—not so with the date. It comes from the bottom and travels through the soil (like a root), coming up many inches later. When this root is about an inch long above the soil, it is time to transplant to a large tub of rich soil so the plant can grow on. In a few weeks the sprout will be joined by another.

It somewhat resembles the Phoenix canariensis (Canary Island date palm), though it has a thinner trunk and does not get quite as tall.

Phoenix sylvestris, Silvester Palm, Toddy Palm, Wild Date Palm

Phoenix sylvestris
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Silvester Palm, Toddy Palm, Wild Date Palm
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.
