Chamaerops humilis 'Cerifera' is native to Morrocco and found across the Mediterranean. Otherwise known as the Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm, this attractive palm is suitable for growth in the UK.
As it's Mediterranean origins would suggest, the Chamaerops humilis is best suited for growth in full sun. This slow growing palm is suitable for growing in containers or being planted in the garden and will eventually grow to heights of up to 1.5m with a spread of up to 1m. The Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm is a striking plant that looks great with other architectural plants.
As with most blue palms, the vividness of the Chamaerops Humilis' colour depends on its exposure to the sun, the more sunshine it receives, the bluer the leaves will be. Despite it's exotic appearance this hardy blue palm is easy to grow and requires only basic maintenance. The stocky, architectural structure of the palm makes it a great plant for adding year-around shape to your garden.
