Mature specimens may have trunks of 50 feet with a canopy spread of 25′ plus. This Phoenix species is highly variable with many “types” maturing at considerable smaller sizes.

Soil Requirements

Tolerant of a wide range of soils (adapts well to the calcareous soils of the Florida Keys and Caribbean Islands).

Water Requirements

Does best with even moisture, but will tolerate occasional flooding, as well as periods of drought when fully established.

Habit of Growth

Full sun is recommended. Hardy to at least Zone 9. Single upright trunk with full canopy.

Landscape Uses

‘Sylvesters’ are an excellent choice for avenue planting or as an accent tree. In formal settings, most specifiers want matched sized trees or groups of trees. Less formal applications look best with staggered sizes creating a grove or broad canopy setting. Multiple trunk trees create a spectacular specimen.
