Phoenix dactylifera
click pic to enlarge

This is the Phoenix species known as the true date palm because it produces large delicious edible fruit, extremely important as food and embedded in many cultures

Phoenix dactylifera is the #2 most important palm in the world, 2nd only to the Coconut palm

Notice how the fronds, which can be 20 feet long, are held high and very upright versus the common palm frond habit of drooping well as "holding" scores of fresh silver-green fronds at the head simultaneously

It is this stately unique "held high" look that appeals to almost everyone

Seen in all Florida climate zones, North to South, but more often in other states in cooler climates including Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, California, etc.  True Date Palm is actually an arid sub-tropical native to North African dry climates and deserts

This is the classic oasis palm

Phoenix dactylifera is very expensive seen often in mansion landscapes and top notch commercial developments

The reason is almost all landscape dactyliferas come from commercial groves, mature, and trucked in across country for re-planting @ typical price: of  $4,000 - $6,000 each plus planting fees added on

Rated 75-100 feet tall in the wild, but closer to 50-60 feet fully mature in cultivation.  Foliage is a unique silver-green

Maximum color is in summer when fruit matures. You need both male and female trees to set seeds / fruit

Besides fruit, dactylifera can be tapped for sugar once a year and can yield as much as 6-8 pounds per extraction

Now available are 10-14 inch well-rooted starter plants (typically almost totally unavailable in this size)
