Item details

The Mediterranean palm is one of the more cold hardy species available. It is used in both residential and commercial landscapes with single and multiple trunk configurations. This versatility makes it a great addition to landscapes weather it is pool side or out in the garden. It also makes a good container plant.

Cold Hardy down to the twenties make this a staple in Southern California. This easy to grow palm is also easy to germinate and grows moderately fast. Plant as a single or in multiples.

Appearance: Chamaerops humilis grows in multiple trunk clumps. Growing from the base sucklings, give this palm a shrubby look. Trunks are covered in old leaf bases and brown fibers can reach 9 inches in diameter. It can take 10-15 years for it to achieve 7ft.

This palm has palmate, or fan shaped, leaves that range from blue green to silvery gray in color. Leaves grow outward then upward. They grow up to 25 inches long and 25 inches wide, supported by 4ft stems. Stems are covered with sharp thorns, so you need to be careful when pruning them.

Cold Tolerance: It is wind resistant and is very cold hardy. It will tolerate cold temperatures down to 5F. It is great for USDA Zones 7b (5 to 10 F) to 11 (above 40 F).

Light Req: Full sun to partial shade. The European Fan Palm grows best in full sun.

Water Req: Moderate. It grows best in moist but well drained soil.

Maintenance: Easy. To prevent nutritional deficiency, apply good quality palm fertilizer that has continuous release formula twice a year during growing season.

These seeds are fresh harvested and cleaned. They respond well to typical germinating techniques. Peat moss mix in a baggy with heat. Seed trays or community pots with some warmth. We use Sand, perlite, and peat mix of equal parts and get good results. Read the article in the link below on other methods for germination.
