Phoenix canariensis

 
The date palm Phoenix canariensis

Phoenix canariensis commonly known as the date palm is a relatively new introduction becoming very popular as a small tree for a small garden, but giving that exotic effect. Our changing climate giving us warmer relatively frost free winters is allowing the growing of less hardy exotic plants.

However in our unpredictable scottish climate nothing is guaranteed so if we do get a cold snap it will test the hardiness of our date palm. I would imagine this small exotic tree could grow to 20 or more feet weather permitting. I have one planted 4 years ago and now at five feet tall and very healthy.
