cold and drought+heat hardy d Chamaerops humilis var.cerifera
Palmae Maroc This palm, which grows in the Atlas mountains in Morocco up to 1700m, offers all the virtues a palm enthusiast from outside the tropics could wish for. It is as robust and adaptable as its regular green relative and happy in a wide range of conditions, tolerating extremes of cold and damp as well as heat and drought or full sun to shade. However, its main attraction is the colour of its leaves: an intense blue-silver (and here we don't mean the silvery colour as seen on the undersides of the leaves of many Chamaerops) on the upper as well as the lower surface of the leafblade. Indeed it is as blue as Brahea armata. Chamaerops humilis var. cerifera (Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm)- this is another ideal palm for desert climates- even the colder ones, as it is hardy perhaps below 10F. Like the more common green form, which is one of the most commonly used landscape palms throughout the world, it is a suckering palm, meaning it has many stems, not just a single trunk. This form of Chamaerops is much more slow growing than the regular form, which many consider slow growing to begin with. However it is an extremely ornamental plant, and probably one of the bluest palms there are. Chamaerops will grow in just about any soil type there is, from sand to clay, though this plant actually appears to prefer the latter for some reason. What this particular form does not tolerate is overhead watering. Tap water on the crown of the blue Chamaerops will often lead to bud or crown rot (the growing center of the palm, where all the leaves come out) and death of that trunk (good thing it's a suckering palm). So watering this plant is best done by soakers, low emitters or drip systems. For some reason rain water does not appear to be an issue. This palm will grow to maybe 20' tall (and nearly as wide) in 30 years or more, but it hasn't been around in cultivation long enough to know for sure. Since it is a suckering palm, new suckers are produced all the time necessitating constant pruning in order to keep this plant from forming a massive, spiny thicket. Trimming this palm requires extreme caution at is one of the sharpest and most fiercly armed palm trees. Reaching in to the center of the palm to trim those leaves can be a dangerous challenge, so it is best to keep on top of this one and prune often. Chamaerops are one of the easier palms to move even as large plants, and larger plants can safely be moved with a back hoe with little risk of loss of the palm. Whether or not this is also true for the blue form remains to be seen, as no massive plants exist except perhaps in its native Mediterranean countries.        Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
