Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain (April 2015)

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I went to Gran Canaria back in April 2015, and I took a few pictures of palm trees with my bad-quality smartphone. ^_^ Here are some of my photos (plus a bonus landscape picture):

I'm not sure of the palm species in picture number 5 (the palm in the central part of the photo), anyone could help me please?

Nice photo's.

I think the palm on the fifth photo is a Roystonea regia.

      Now that the Dorne storyline is (presumably) over, I'll miss those great views of the palms in the water gardens of the 10th-century Alcázar Palace in Seville, Spain. It was used in HBO's Game of Thrones for the rulers of the House Martell.

    • Rapha Farnifera in mainland Spain?
      By Dondequiera Jeff
      As near as I can tell from looking at my palm books and on the internet, this palm is a Raphia farnifera. It is growing in Parque de la Paloma in Benalmádena, Málaga, Spain. I was surprised to see it as I assumed it was too tropical to grow in this area. Although it is a 10A area, it is cool for several months in the winter, with average daily highs only about 62ºF or about 16.5ºC. I have never seen another palm of this type in Andalucía. By the way, a few weeks ago we had temperatures down to about 2ºC but this palm seems completely unaffected. Can someone confirm that it is actually a Raphia farnifera? If not, any idea what it is?
