Another Chamaerops form

Phoenikakias

The more I look at its pictures, the more I find it appealing! I wait with anxiety for the new fruit production. Fortunately it is a female plant with with some male flowers also, so that a handful of viable seeds is secured. It has very stiff leaf blades of orbicular shape, a bit pleated, which are supported by disproportionally long petioles...

Very cool ... looks a lot like shade grown, but obviously in sun. The variation in Chamaerops is why so many grow more than one.

Cheers, Barrie.

If only you could feel also the texture of the leaves. So unreally rigid!

Maybe a new genus Trithrinaxaerops!

Actually Chamaerops is SO variable, that one can find in some forms a resemblance to other palm genera and spp. It's the great pretender!

That's a beauty. Thanks for sharing.

i noticed mine, which is in the ground just a year and a half from about a 8L size, is showing some maturity. What is this, inflorescence?
