Date palm often reaches a size too massive for most residential landscapes but, fortunately, it is very slow-growing and will take a considerable amount of time to reach its 50 to 60-foot- height. Date Palm is most impressive with its single, upright, thick trunk topped with a crown of 8 to 15-foot-long, stiff leaves with extremely sharp spines at their bases. The stalks of inconspicuous flowers are replaced with clusters of one-inch-diameter, orange-yellow, date-like, ornamental fruits which ripen in early summer. The trunk can reach a diameter of four feet and is covered with an attractive, diamond-shaped pattern from old leaf scars. Date palm can be used at large parking lot islands; wide tree lawns, tree lawns, recommended for buffer strips around parking lots or for median strip plantings in the highway; specimen; sidewalk cutout (tree pit); residential street tree; tree has been successfully grown in urban areas where air pollution, poor drainage, compacted soil, and/or drought are common. Date Palm should be grown in full sun on fertile, moist soil for best growth but is tolerant of any well-drained soil. It can be planted on the inland side of coastal condominiums and large homes due to moderately high salt-tolerance. It does well as a street or avenue tree, even in confined soil spaces. Date Palm will require pruning to remove old fronds.

Watering: Palms generally prefer to stay moist. Usually a good thorough watering once a week is sufficient. Wait until soil is dry to touch 2 inches deep. A misting a couple times a week is good. These palms should never be allowed to dry out or allowed to stand in water. Excessively wet soil can lead to root rot. Water thoroughly when the surface of the soil dries and discards the water in the saucer after the pot drains.
Repotting: Palms do best when their roots are confined and may only need re-potting every two to three years, if roots fill the pot. Repot when needed in rainy seasons.
Problems: Almost problem free palm in ground. Over-irrigation and rainy weather could initiate root rot. In containers, too much water causes root rot.
