Phoenix reclinata, also called Senegalese date palm, is often a multi-stemmed palm tree. The trunks themselves are rather thin. The petioles have long, sharp spines at the base. <br>It tolerates drought quite well and prefers bright, sunny locations with well-draining soil. Like most Phoenixes, it is otherwise an easy palm to care for. Phoenix reclinata is hardly hardy, -6°C, protect from -1°C, and can therefore only be kept as a container plant in our regions.
