OTHER: This beautiful Palm is native to the deserts of the US & Mexico, but always near a water source. Think of a beautiful desert oasis! The trees have a single unbranched trunk, & are topped with huge 3 – 6’ wide fan shaped leaves. The leaves are evergreen & they are stiff, not drooping. Cottony leaf threads stay on plant, & if the old leaves are not removed, they will cover the trunk of the tree. This is not a bad thing. This ‘Petticoat’ provides a great protected tiki hut-like shelter for all kinds of small wildlife seeking refuge. This skirt actually creates a microhabitat within its protection for small birds & invertebrates.
The California Fan Palm has huge drooping clusters of flowers from July to August. They turn into a sweetly flavored fruit that is used to make jellies & drinks. Birds & other wildlife will enjoy eating the fruit too. Native Americans used the fruit & nuts of the fan palm, & its leaves for woven baskets & thatched roofs.
These palms can be grown in containers as a houseplant, or they can be transplanted from a container unlike a like of palms. They are also very tolerant of coastal conditions like wind & salt.
Did you know … Washingtonia filifera is the only palm native to the Western United States, and is the country's largest native palm.
