Chamaerops Humilis Argentea Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm)

Plant Description

Plant Description
Chamaerops humilis var. argentea is similar to the standard green Chamaerops humilis in all respects except for its striking silver coloured fronds.

In fact, the more heat and sunshine the bluer it will become. As with the standard green Chamaerops humilis it produces suckers from the base which if not removed will produce a mass of beautiful silver leaves down to ground level.

Suitability

Suitability
Generally considered to be as hardy as the standard green Chamaerops humilis, a sunny spot with plenty of drainage is the ideal location for this drought tolerant palm.

It may be planted outside and a large established plant will endure considerable frost. It is also excellent for conservatories where it is very tolerant of extreme temperatures. Very wind tolerant, it is also suitable for exposed or coastal gardens.

Origin

Origin
Originating in the high Atlas Mountains of North Africa, this is the striking silver-blue variant of Chamaerops humilis whilst its silver colour is similar to that of Brahea armata.
