Origin
The Phoenix canariensis, also known as the Canary Island date palm, has its origin in the Canary Islands. This archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean off the northwestern coast of Africa. This explains the Phoenix canariensis' love for sunny and warm conditions.

Characteristics
The Phoenix canariensis can grow into a truly monumental palm, with a trunk height of up to 20 meters and a leaf crown of 12 meters. The leaves of this palm species can grow to a whopping 6 meters. The tree bears edible fruits that resemble dates. These sweet, orange fruits have an egg-shaped form and are about 2 cm in size.

Care
The Phoenix canariensis prefers full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade. It is a very hardy palm that can withstand sub-zero temperatures, but it is better to find a frost-free place in colder climates. For optimal growth, the tree requires regular watering, but it is important to prevent the soil from becoming waterlogged. The Phoenix canariensis has few demands on the soil, but drainage improvement with coarse sand or perlite is recommended for heavy clay soils.
