Multi trunk Phoenix ID

Recommended Posts

Saw an interesting multi trunk Phoenix today in Destin. Must be a hybrid of some kind. My guess is Phoenix Canariensis and Phoenix Roebelenii hybrid. What say you!

It was seeding too, so took a few and will try to germinate them.

Would be awesome if it was P. Reclinata. But I’m not sure that  P. Reclinata is hardy enough for this area.

Phoenix reclinata takes up to  -5 deg C in Bloemfontein most years. There are numerous ones here. 

Most winters it doesn’t go below -5C here, but every now and then it does. Absolute lows of below -5C, all the way to -12C(1899 and 1989), used to happen quite frequently. 

Must be why it’s the only P. Reclinata in the area that I know of, and why I tend to think it’s a hybrid of some kind that gives it some extra cold hardiness.

there was one in charleston

I’m sure there ‘was’ one, but it is no more. Not after a low of 16F this past winter.
