Canary Island Date Palm CareView Full Planting & Care Instructions
SunlightPlant your Canary Island Date Palm in an area that receives full sun (6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day).
WateringWater your Palm 2-3 times per week for the first month, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.
FertilizingIf necessary, use a palm-specific fertilizer for your Palm. Slow-release fertilizer is best to allow the smaller root system to uptake what it needs. Apply close to the base and start in spring/follow specific fertilizer instructions.
Low maintenance, drought tolerant palm
The Canary Island Date Palm is the number one palm planted by hotels and resorts because their tropical beauty surprises and outshines other palm varieties.
This canary palm variety has a singular wide trunk that grows straight upwards with attractive grey bark. The bark has a textured pattern with a series of horizontal diamonds. The pattern resembles a pineapple’s skin, giving this tree its nickname, the ‘Pineapple Palm’.
At the top of each Canary Palm sits a large crown of long arching fronds that are covered with long leaf blades that fill the landscape with lush, tropical color. The color only intensifies when this palm has large clusters of orange flowers in the spring that turn into bright orange showy fruit in the fall.
This tall growing palm grows large enough to make a bold statement in your landscape. It will attract the eyes of all of your neighbors, and you’ll be able to see its vibrant colors from miles away, inviting you to relax in the tropical paradise it creates.
If you would like to keep a smaller palm, place your Canary Island Date Palm in a container. These palms love growing in pots, and can even be kept indoors. If you live above growing zone 8, place your palm tree in a pot and bring it indoors once the weather gets cold.
Canary Island Date Palms are often celebrated as one of most low maintenance palm varieties available. They are heat resistant and drought tolerant so they need little to no attention during hot summer days.
