Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

The European Palm Society journal Issue 20 of Chamaerops dated October 1995 had a front and back cover spread showing both palms. (Sorry, can't get a link - maybe someone else?)

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

... rotted away. I doubt very much it would be old age that killed them as Phoenix canariensis can live much longer & grow taller than those specimens... ah cheers! real shame ...

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

My guess is old age. It is possible that the terrible floods that Cork has had since December was the knock out, though I can't see standing water the water table must be high. Cork has been as hard hit as SW England though that has escaped most of the UK media. I know Logan Botanic Gardens in South...

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

Is does look blutty tall for a Phoenix canariensis_CIDP in that location, was it planted rather large or? As they appear to have been planted 118 years ago, don't think the size at planting time would have made much difference. The 1890s ...

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

It could have just died of old age?

All palms have to do that eventually.

The best thing now would be to plant 2 new CIDPS or maybe a couple of Buta palms.

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

They did get snow in Cork in 2010, even on Fota Island where the Phoenix was located, but can't have got that cold there surely... Apparently they were planted in 1896, a real shame :(

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

It is a shame :( I know western Ireland had some pretty cold temps in 2010, but not sure if that was the case down as far as cork. If cold damage occurred with the extreme high humidity infection could have set in.

Re: Cork Phoenix Canariensis dead

That's a shame :( I knew the other one died a few years ago but thought the left side one was ok, I wonder what caused their deaths?

Re: date palm

The date palm I take it is phoenix canariensis, which will need protecting over winter....until too big and the cordyline would probably be red star, which as Jas said will take a couple of degrees below but will prefer a sheltered, sunny position
