Cold Hardy, Versatile Palm

Mediterranean Fan Palm is one of the most versatile and ornamental of the palms. It’s even cold tolerant, and in fact one of the hardiest palm trees you’ll find.

Plant one as a specimen tree in your front yard or along a walkway for a distinctive welcome to your home. Imagine using Fan Palms as container plants for your patio where some subtle back-lighting will highlight their gently swaying fronds and the unique shadowed patterns they cast. What a tropical, restful feel this palm can bring to your home!

Your Mediterranean Fan Palm is a multi-trunked palm that can be left to grow naturally in a shrub-like manner. However, many prefer to prune it into a bundle-like appearance that highlights the rough-hewn, tropical trunk that palms are so well-known for.

Each blade of the huge, fan-like, palmate foliage is 36-inches or longer, creating a spectacular “palm”. The 24-inch wide palm leaves form a symmetrical crown atop the 4-foot stems that support them from the trunk. Their blue-green coloring creates a superb accompaniment to the darker trunk.

Fan Palm’s evergreen nature provides year-round interest and is so versatile that it can even be grown indoors as a houseplant if desired. In the spring, tiny yellow blooms will barely peek out at you from behind the foliage stems, transitioning by autumn into tiny drupes. These dark yellow/brown fruits ripen to provide a valuable treat for your wildlife.

Mediterranean Fan Palm will grow 10 to 15 feet in height with an equal spread. It has no significant disease concerns, is low maintenance and considered very easy to grow. Once established, Fan Palm is even drought tolerant.

An exotic Palm tree with a hardy nature, the Mediterranean Fan Palm is an easy way to bring a tropical ambience to your landscape today.
