Phoenix theophrastii

Cretan Date Palm

The hardiest of all the date palms!! My palm survived -6C in the showgarden without any protection.

This rare species is only known from a few small sites on the Greek island of Crete and in southern Turkey. It is somewhat similar to the true Date Palm but has a particularly compact appearance with silvery-gray, spikey leaves and clustering trunks.
