Cliff Date Palm
Forget everything you have ever thought about Phoenix palms. This stunning
species from the foothills of the Himalayas has little in common with
its relatives from drier climates, and, with its long, elegantly arching,
shiny green fronds and smooth, slender trunk, it actually resembles a
coconut palm. It is easy and fast growing, suitable for tropical as well
as temperate climates, and will even tolerate moderate frosts. Seeds are
wild collected and guaranteed not to be hybrid--a guarantee rarely able
to be given about a species from a cultivated source. In cultivation,
Phoenix rupicola has become hugely popular in recent years.
This is the 'new' Phoenix that everyone is currently talking about! In
obscurity for a century, this species really is the most elegant of all
the Phoenix palms and impossible to confuse with the rest of the genus.
These plants are bound to be extremely popular in the future. The seeds
that we sold a few years ago have already produced very attractive young
plants, with soft & glossy dark green leaves which are held at right
angles to the horizontal. For the grower this palm is perfect, with its
inexpensive seeds, fast and easy germination, rapid growth and compact
size. For the end user its main attributes are its tough and easy care
nature, cold hardiness, compact size and shape, slim white trunk, and
glossy leaves almost reminiscent of a coconut palm. Grab this opportunity
to buy it now while supplies are plentiful and cheap, in just 3-5 years
you'll be so glad you did.
