|Botanical Name||Phoenix canariensis|
|Common Name||Canary Island Date Palm|
|Notes||Despite the name, this native of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic is not the source of your Christmas dates, they come from the true Date Palm, Phoenix dactylifera, which originated in the eastern Mediterranean and Near East.|
The largest palm in the cgarden's collection, this tree is still a long way from full grown.
