Pygmy Date Palm, Phoenix roebellenii
A triple-headed pygmy date palm is an unparalleled accent plant. Feathery fronds gracefully sway and whisper in a breeze. Colorful crotons act as a groundcover in this arrangement.

Lower fronds are often left intact with pygmy dates to create a shielding effect. Seed heads may be pruned out by reaching in towards the palm bud and pulling away for a clean cut. Be careful! The fronds are armored with sharp, unforgiving thorns.
Two pygmy date palms are spaced around this pool enclosure providing both privacy and beauty.
