The Sylvester Date Palm has many similar characteristics to the True Date Palm, such as a robust, solitary trunk with that striking diamond pattern that adds a touch of elegance anywhere. Native to India, Phoenix sylvestris (botanical name) is a beautiful accent palm, which is part of the reason why you will often find them planted in luxury home properties, upscale resorts, and planted in rows along avenues. These are fast-growing palms, with an attractive canopy featuring fronds with gray-green hues that help this tree blend well with many landscape themes. We like to plant them poolside, where mirror-smooth water can reflect their graceful shape, and with landscape lighting, you can create nighttime drama!

Phoenix sylvestris thrives in full sun or partial shade. Once established, they have a high drought tolerance and have little to moderate water requirements. They are also very adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions and are cold hardy!
