Palm ID help

blackbergNovember 20, 2012

Hi all!

I need some help IDing this palm. It grew by itself, along the fence line. It was getting to big and we removed over the weekend and placed it in a 24" box. I t is growing relatively fast and is gaining girth.

here are some pics

thanks for any help.

I want to get name plates for all my palms, and this is the only unknown right now.

thanks again

It's a phoenix of some sort (date). That's all i know. My guess is dactylifera.

If it grew by itself then mother is nearby. Find out what mother is.

There are no palms immediately around it, closest ones are a couple of blocks away, the house is on a corner, and we do get all sorts of birds, so it could have come that way

Phoenix canariensis. Where i'm from those guys pop up like weeds everywhere, especially on a well watered lawn with a fence to protect it from the mower.

I was thinking it was phoenix.
I am hoping it is canariensis, but dactylifera is good too.

I know it will get a little sad in the near future beacuse of the transplant, but hopefully it recovers fast and keep growing at the pace it was,

and once I have a better idea of what it is an how big it will get it can go back in the ground, asap

Phoenix hybridise very readily, so you might have a bit of a mixture there.
