Product Overview:

The Sylvester Palm is commonly known by many names, such as the Silver Date Palm, Sugar Date Palm and Wild Date Palm. This popular landscaping palm works well for lining avenues, around pools and as accent trees. As a slow grower, Sylvesters get to be just the right size for most home landscapes. It has been gaining popularity as a cost-effective substitution to the Medijool Date Palm. Sylvester Palms have many silvery blue-green fronds that rise directly from the trunk. The leaflets are arranged opposite to one another producing a nice, sleek appearance. If left untouched, Sylvester trunks have "boots" where old leaflets once were.
