About the Canary Palm:

The Canary Palm Tree, also known as the Canary Island Date Palm,  is one of the most majestic of all palm tree varieties.  This sub-tropical palm tree has been grown for exotic landscape for over 200 years.

This large, stately palm often reaches a size too massive for most residential landscapes but, fortunately, it is very slow-growing and will take a considerable amount of time to reach its 50 to 60-foot-height.

The Canary Island Date Palm is also known as the “Pineapple Palm” because of the unique pineapple shape it forms after it is trimmed.

The Canary Island Date Palm Tree is recommended for Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Kiawah SC and surrounding areas.
