CANARY ISLANDS DATE PALM (Phoenix canariensis)

The palm tree that some believed pineapple

This palm, endemic to the Canary Islands, is undoubtedly one of the most widely used ornamental palms in the world due to its impressive size and ease of cultivation. It is common to prune the leaves below the crown giving the palm an exaggerated and unmistakable appearance of a pineapple, with a scaly bulb crowned by a bunch of green leaves. A practice that many of us consider unnecessary, ridiculous and unaesthetic.
