Id of Phoenix date palm

subtropixJuly 28, 2011

Can anyone identify this Phoenix. It is DEFINITELY not either canariensis or dactylifera (True Date). It may be P. reclinata or rupicola. Leaves are a bit more blue green compared to canariensis--also even more prickly and so far it's a non-sucker.Thanks in advance.

Okay, I think it's a Phoenix sylvestris due to the blue-silver leaves.

P.sylvestris usually has orange-yellow on the petioles. Yours looks like a canarienses X roebellini cross.

Doesn't as all seem like a roebellini though as the bluish leaves are quite rigid and and prickly--not at all like a roebellini. I just got a P. dactylifera (True Date) and it's distinct from that one as well.
