One of the Prettiest Cold-Hardy Palms

The Sylvester Date Palm is quite the showstopper with its silvery blue-green fronds. It’s a great choice for gardeners who like the looks of the larger date palms, (like the Canary Island variety), but just don’t have the room.

Cold hardy, drought tolerant and moderately salt tolerant, the Sylvester is famous for its seeds, which are frequently used in jams and jellies. Slow growing, they stay low to the ground when young, then grow an attractive trunk in a diamond-shaped pattern.

    The sylvestri palm arrived well packed and in great condition. It was as advertised and appears to be healthy. I’ve since ordered two Mexican Fan Palms from Plantvine. Great folks to do business with. Thank you!

Why others chose this plant.

Phoenix Sylvestris is one of the premier Palms.

The palms I previously ordered were so large and healthy and packed so well, that I was moved to order more even though I live all the way across the country!

Beautiful palm!
