A huge crown of over 50 arching pinnate leaves that may reach up to 18’+ long adorn the top of its trunk. The leaves are usually a deep green fading to a deep yellow/orange stem where the leaflets are replaced by very sharp vicious spines. Many will display the bunched small date seeds stems turning ½” dates from yellow to a luscious deep bright orange making a dramatic colorful contrast with the deep green leaves and dark trunk.
Originally native to the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean just off the northwest coast of Africa. The Palm grows on all seven islands, perhaps more profusely in the island of Gran Canaria one of the seven that make up this volcanic archipelago known as the Canary Islands; from desert conditions to almost a lush tropical setting it seems to thrive very well throughout all the islands there and indeed today all over the world.
