Common questions about growing Phoenix

1. Are Phoenix palms fast growing?

Phoenix palms are generally considered fast-growing plants. They can grow up to 60 cm per year, depending on the species and environmental conditions. This means that they can reach their mature height in as little as 10-15 years.

With proper care, Phoenix palms can be a fast-growing and beautiful addition to any landscape.

2. Are Phoenix palms protected in NZ?

Phoenix palms are considered pest plants in New Zealand and their importation, sale, and distribution are prohibited under the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry (NESPF). This is because they can have a negative impact on native ecosystems by outcompeting native plants for resources, such as sunlight and water. They can also spread diseases and pests to native plants.

Under the NESPF, landowners are required to control Phoenix palms on their land if they have been planted in breach of the regulations. If a landowner fails to control Phoenix palms on their land, the council may take enforcement action. There are a number of exemptions to the NESPF rules, such as for Phoenix palms that are planted for ornamental purposes in certain areas, such as parks and gardens. However, these exemptions are subject to strict conditions, such as the need to obtain a permit from the council. In addition to the NESPF, there are a number of regional pest management plans in New Zealand that also restrict the planting of Phoenix palms. These plans may have additional rules to the NESPF, such as requiring landowners to remove existing Phoenix palms from their land.

If you are unsure whether you are allowed to plant a Phoenix palm on your land, you should contact your local council.

3. What is the English name for Phoenix palm?

The English name for Phoenix palm is date palm. This name is derived from the fact that the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) is the species that produces edible dates. Other species of Phoenix palms, such as the Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis) and the Senegal date palm (Phoenix reclinata), are also known as date palms, although they do not produce edible dates.

4. Do Phoenix palms like sun or shade?

Phoenix palms are native to warm, tropical climates and thrive in full sun. They need at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day to grow properly. However, they can also tolerate some shade, especially during the hottest part of the day. If you are planting a Phoenix palm in an area that receives some shade, make sure that it is not in a location that is completely shaded for most of the day.
