The Pineapple Palm, more commonly known as the Canary Island Date Palm or by its scientific name Phoenix canariensis, is a majestic palm tree native to the Canary Islands. It's well-known for its distinctive appearance, with a thick, textured trunk and a lush crown of fronds, which resemble a pineapple's rough skin, hence the common name.

In cultivation, Pineapple Palms can grow to an impressive height of 20 to 50 feet, with a spread of 10 to 15 feet. The tree has a single, robust trunk that is often wider at the base and covered with a patterned texture of old leaf scars. The crown is composed of large, arching fronds that can reach lengths of up to 15 to 20 feet. The fronds are deep green and create a dense, rounded canopy.

One of the notable features of Phoenix canariensis is its slow growth rate. The tree can take many years to reach its full height but is long-lived. This palm also produces ornamental orange dates, which are not typically considered edible due to their poor taste.

Pineapple Palms thrive in full sun and require well-draining soil. They are fairly drought-tolerant once established but benefit from regular watering during dry periods. While they can tolerate some cold, they are best suited to warmer climates and may require protection in areas with freezing temperatures.

In landscaping, Pineapple Palms are often used as specimen trees due to their grand size and striking appearance. They are popular in public spaces, large gardens, and along streets and avenues in warm climates. The Pineapple Palm is also an excellent choice for creating a dramatic and exotic landscape effect.

Overall, the Pineapple Palm is a stunning and iconic tree, valued for its tropical appearance and the stately presence it adds to any landscape. Its size and distinctive look make it a favorite for adding a touch of elegance and drama to larger outdoor spaces.
