About Phoebe

Phoebe is a great all-rounder as she works well as both an indoor or outdoor palm - her sturdy, arching green stems make her a great architectural plant either placed as a standalone palm in the corner or among other exotic-looking palms, grasses and flowers.

Details

Our Canary island date plams come in two different heights:

Plant height: 130-140cm; Nursery pot width: 21cm
Plant height: 180-190cm; Nursery pot width: 26cm

Phoebe is an evergreen palm native to the Canary islands but will be just as happy growing up in a sunny London spot. During the autumn, creamy-yellow flowers will bloom from the palm, followed by reddish-yellow fruits.

Likes

For the most part - lots of sun but Phoebe will also be happy with a few hours of midday shade.

Dislikes

Windy spaces so make sure she is positioned in a sheltered spot.

Looking after this plant

Phoebe likes well-drained soil so make sure you plant her with a good drainage material at the bottom such as this gravel - an inch mixed in with compost should do the trick.
