Chamaerops Humilis Vulcano (Dwarf Mediterranean Fan Palm)

Plant description

Plant Description
This fabulously attractive palm has unusual features including very stiff leaves with dense and attractive foliage.
If the suckers are not removed it can develop a virtually spherical plume of leaves making it almost ‘ball like’ in shape.


Chamaerops humilis ‘Vulcano’ is superb as a containerized plant and larger specimens may be planted in the ground.

As with all Chamaerops, it is very wind tolerant making it an excellent choice for exposed coastal gardens and it exhibits similar hardiness to the standard Chamaerops humilis. As with the other members of the Chamaerops family, it is exceptionally good choice for conservatories.


Discovered on the Mediterranean island of Vulcano, we are proud to have introduced this new palm to Britain.

We launched this exciting palm at Chelsea Flower Show in 2001 for the first time ever publicly displayed in Great Britain. Whilst all our palms are responsibly propagated from seed it is unfortunate that this palm no longer exists on Vulcano Island.

Sorry, we are currently out of stock. Please try a different search.
