(Cretan date palm)
Family Arecaceae
Originating from Crete and Turkey

The hardiest of the Date palms, theophrastii has glaucous green/silver leaves when mature, and even young specimens add architectural drama to a planting scheme. It requires the sunniest spot in the garden and really well-drained soil. In winter it may be necessary to wrap the leaves with fleece, and is recommended for coastal and milder parts of the UK.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height (in UK) 5m
