Red Leaf Palms from Tenerife to Europe. Pictures and Videos.

Palmera de hoja roja. Palma dalla foglia rossa. Chambeyronia Canarius | Saturday May 28th, 2011 |

This palm produces new leaves that are red for one or two weeks. Then they turn green and you have to wait for another new leaf in order to see again the red colour.  The Latin name of this unusual palm is Chambeyronia macrocarpa. It is native to New Caledonia and takes light frosts.  Red Leaf Palms grow outdoors in the coastal Mediterranean climate, even though it is very slow. They are grown successfully in Portugal, Spain, Southern France, Italy and Greece.

This palm grows a bit faster in the Canary Islands and many specimens are cultivated in Tenerife for sale. Red-leaf-palms are highly demanded palms in Europe.

Canarius.com offers different sizes of Chambeyronia and will ship them to your home. Some examples are:

Chambeyronia Macrocarpa

This video shows larger palms of the same species grown in the ground in Southern Tenerife. These are also cultivated for commercial purposes. It is spectacular to see so many red leaves.

Not all palms are tropical plants. Many palm species can resist snow and frost. Come and visit our shop at www.canarius.com . We offer above 100 palm species and will ship to your home.

Bottle palms with super roots

Canarius | Thursday October 14th, 2010 |

This picture shows a picture of a bottle palm, Hyophorbe lagenicaulis, cultivated in the Canary Islands in a 12 cm pot. This palm shows a spectacular root system, just like many of the palm species we ship from Tenerife to your home. When a palm like this gets to your home, it will need to be transplanted to a pot of 17-20 cm . The stronger root system will soon fill the new pot and your palm will quickly jump to a much larger size.

The palms we offer are grown in shade houses, in different areas of Tenerife, where the use of chemicals is kept to a minimum. We enjoy an even subtropical climate with a cool winter but our nurseries are not heated, in order to produce strong hardy plants that can be grown in cooler climates. The only exception are the heated areas for seed sprouting and rooting. Our plants are free from pests and diseases.

We offer more than 120 species of palm trees. Come and check our quality in the Palm Shop.
