Chamaerops humilis 'Vulcano'
6 litre pot
Full sun or partial shade
Well drained soil
Dwarf Mediterranean Palm
'Vulcano' is a beautiful form of Chamaerops humilis, it is slighlty more compact and a little more slower growing, making this an ideal architectural palm tree for many landscaping and garden design projects. Vulcano has a lovely silvery bloom on the undersides of the leaves which are visible as the palm leaves tend to grow upright in a compact, bushy fashion. As with Chamaerops humilis, it is very tolerant of wind and coastal positions and loves the sun, the silvery bloom will be more visible with maximum sunshine. A lovley palm tree.
These palms are great for planting into the border in a well drained soil or great for planting in pots, if you are looking for good quality planters, we can recommend http://www.vasotoscano.com/ for beautiful terracotta pots.
