  • Canary Date Palms take a lot of space before they get tall.
  • At 30 to 40 years old - the Canary Date Palm is impressive, but you have to be patient!
  • Mexican Fan Palm showing some winter damage
  • Norm had to cut down a palm recently . . .
  • Mexican Blue Fan Palm
  • Mexican Blue Fan Palm
