Senegal Date Palm (Phoenix reclinata)
Also called Senegal Date Palm they are an elegant, yet less refined cousin of the Resort Style (Medjool) Date Palm, the Senegal Date Palm boasts a slightly different trunk structure, lending the dependability and formality of a date palm to something with more shape and character. Named for the reclining, curving nature of the fronds, the Phoenix Reclinata boasts a thick network of green fronds that curve back towards the center of the tree.
Like other date palms, the Phoenix Reclinata is low on maintenance, has great durability, and doesn't require much water or constant care. These trees look especially wonderful when planted near pools or other water features, and the colorful date stalks look especially impressive when planted under a balcony or other elevated viewing platform.
