OTHER: This Fan Palm is native to Southern Europe & the Western Mediterranean. It is a Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit winner! Chamaerops Humilis has a shrubby clumping habit & stiff evergreen fans that measure up to 2 1/2' wide. The durable leaves of this palm are used for weaving baskets & other things.
The flowers are a lovely buttery yellow, & many small blooms form in clusters to form large upright spikes. The fall fruit of this palm is not eaten by humans, but it is very ornamental! The smooth shiny ovals start out green & turn lovely shades of yellow, orange, & red, & dark red. Mediterranean Fan Palms tolerate drought, humidity, & coastal conditions like salt. They can grow in poor and rocky soils & are used for erosion control. These dwarf palms provide food & habitat for birds & other wildlife, but are deer resistant. The plants are usually dioecious, so you will need both male & female plants if you wish for them to be pollinated. Grow them outdoors year round in zone 8 or higher, in containers, or as a houseplant in cooler climates.
