Q. Phoenix canariensis size for fast growth

Hi, i want to buy a Phoenix canariensis, the palms have grown in pots outdoor in my town.
I read that a smaller palm recover transplant shock faster and can grow faster than a large. Is this true? Should i buy a small palm or the largest i can afford?
I want after years it to become as big as possible, what size is the best choice?

Thanks.

Canary Island Palm Trees grow slowly.
Choosing the size to buy is dependent on cost and your landscape plans.

The larger the specimen the bigger challenge in the transplanting.
Make sure you purchase from a reputable garden center and the Palm is properly staked.

Q. Phoenix canariensis size for the fastest growth

Hi, you don’t gave me a clear answer in my previous question.
I ask again, i want a canary palm to become big at the fastest rate the next years.
If i buy a 3m tall palm against a 1m tall palm will the 3m palm remain bigger than the 1m palm after years or it’s not sure (because of the bigger transplant shock)?

Thanks.

Certainly if you start with a larger specimen Palm, it will be larger in a certain time frame.

The growth rate will not change between Palms. The slow rate is considered slow for this Palm.
