Says who, that only the Chamaerops cultivar volcano has weakly armed petioles?

This sp never ceases to surprise me with its variability. This time an obviously arborescent cultivar shows almost unarmed petioles.

That is a really nice specimen. I've seen several others over the years that were nearly spineless as well.

As you said though, this species displays a lot of variability. There's one in Oklahoma City at the Myriad botanical garden in a jungle greenhouse that is unarmed. It is kind of stretched out under the canopy of larger trees, so it looks pretty unique.
