A Huge Canary Island Date Palm in Casslberry, Florida

During a late afternoon, I drove to Casselberry, Florida.   Usually, I pass through Casselberry when I travel Highway 17-92 from Orlando to Sanford. On the way to Sanford, I would always notice the outdoor water fountains located in two Casselberry ponds. Owning a love for photographing outdoor fountains, I finally decided photographing the Casselberry water fountains.

Yet, after photographing the fountains with my iPhone, a huge palm tree caught my eye.  As a last minute thing, I photographed the tree.

Next, after some Snapseed and Instagram editing, I uploaded the photo to Facebook.  On Facebook, my friend Dylan identified the tree as a Canary Island Date Palm.

Also known as phoenix canariensis, the palm tree originates from the Canary Islands, thus the popular common name.  Also, because of it’s unique shape after a trim, the tree is also known as the “Pineapple Palm”.

After receiving many Facebook compliments, I’m glad I did photograph the tree.
