Chamaerops humilis var. agentea

Recommended Posts

I have been growing one in central NJ for over 10 years and while it definitely is slow growing, it always looks good.  This year I don't plan on protecting it unless it gets really cold for a stretch, otherwise its been super tough!

Good topic! There are so many excellent forms of Chamaerops. 
 

I have a 16 year old plant which is a stiff leaf argentea type palm, that for the previous 6 years has produced pollen, so very clearly a male. Last year it produced a few viable  seeds!!?? This year it has also produced both male and female flowers and again produced around a dozen seed.

This one has a Nannorhops look. I'm just learning about these.

No, Its definitely C.humilis, I can't grow Nannorhops here due to the lack of heat, they have similar requirements to Sabal.
