Phoenix Canariensis (or Canary Island palm) is the most common of the Phoenix and perhaps even all palm trees.
It has a bulky, straight jamb, with the scars left by the petioles of the old leaves. The leaves, with their solid petioles, measure from 3 to 4 m. and they are of a nice more or less bright green. The quills are long and leathery (30 to 40 cm.).
Slowly growing, especially in the early years, its height ranges from 8 to 10 m. and the diameter from 4 to 5 m.
