The palm tree was planted some time between 1990 and 1995, estimates owner Charles Carver, operator of the Ibiza Nightclub.
The tree is planted on the side of the building at 118 Market St., Wilmington [Map this].
“I bought the property in 2001 and it was there. I didn’t actually plant that,” Carver said.
The tree is now about 30 feet tall.
“It’s a really fast-growing variety,” Carver said.
