Phoenix reclinata (Senegal Date Palm) - The outside trunks on this large multi-trunk palm curve outward to allow for the inner trunks to grow. The leaves arch downward and the stiff leaflets at the base of the petioles become long narrow spines. It typically grows to 30 feet talll and forms a clump that can be as wide. It needs ample water which will encourage it to grow rather quickly. Plant in full sun. It is hardy to 28F.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Phoenix reclinata.
