Phoenix - Date Palms

Phoenix are evergreen palms adorned with solitary or clustered trunks patterned with the bases of the old leaf stalks. They are topped with gracefully arching, feather-like fronds and bear drooping panicles of creamy-yellow flowers. The flowers on female palms give way to showy clusters of small, fleshy fruits. Most Date Palms are ubiquitous in Mediterranean climates all over the world and some are quite cold hardy.
