Chamaerops "NorCal Special"

Recommended Posts

Chamaerops humilis v. argentea    (aka 'cerifera')

  I purchased this palm as a 5-gallon plant in 2005.  It has a very nice blue color, and it holds the color even in a shady location and a very humid microclimate,  I selected this palm from a few hundred of its siblings at a nursery on the east side of Fallbrook, CA.  It is distinct in the leaflet form, and has  two ranks of leaflets, one above the other. During a visit by Dr. Dransfield he remarked that this was a most unusual feature. The main stem is about 8 inches diameter and 16 inches tall.

  I have decided to remove this palm, as I planted it too close to the public sidewalk in front of my home. Eventually, the spiny petioles will injure a pedestrian.  This palm is free to the first person who wants to dig it out in a "Timely Period", say the next 2 or 3 weeks..  I can help dig, but the major effort should be by the recipient.  Hit me with a PM to claim this nice Chamaerops.

Good story, glad it was able to find a new home. Only a matter of time if it was on the sidewalk for an opportunist to stake their claim.... or for an honest accident to happen.

Just thought I'd share an updated photo. The palm went through a minor shock but resumed growth right away. Here it is today, just 4 months from transplanting and pushing out multiple spears at once
