Senegal Date Palm, Phoenix reclinata
Location: Nelson Park
Significance: Botanical, uncommon
The Senegal Date Palm usually forms a clump of stems, and this group in Nelson Park, planted more than 65 years ago, typifies the species' growth habit.
In New Zealand, the palms are seldom seen outside botanical gardens, so this location in a Napier park is unusual.
