Chamaerops humilis 'Vulcano'

aka Dwarf Mediterranean Fan Palm: This is a form of this species with somewhat fused and/or widened, bright, lime green leaflets and shortened petioles that is reportedly a naturally occurring form in Scicily. Other than its appearance, it seems to be similar in cold hardiness and ease of growth.

I see thriving in the high desert. When are we going to get a pictorial Geoff of what you've done?

I haven't done much... things grow SOOOOO slow here they have hardly changed in 4 years.... and tons of stuff gets eaten by gophers all the time... sick and tired of losing old plants. My worst loss was a Butia archeri I have had for 15 years... finally planted it when I moved up here and had the battle the rabbits to keep it with leaves... after 4 years it was finally large enough to remove the 'fence' around it (rabbits no longer interested in it) only to lose it to gophers a few months later.
