At Angelo's on the south end of myrtle. These are the largest I've seen in the area.

Nice specimen. The ones curving out from the building’s eves are quite appeasing to my taste. 
are these trimmed to be single troubled, or the rare ones that actually are?

Yea they def made for a cool looking doorway. I didn't inspect the base of the trunks closely but they appeared to be single trunk. I prefer the solo look, especially with a crown like these had

I like it as well. Solo grown is magnificent when it’s full like that.

Nice. I got this one for $110 dollars from a guy in Florida that pulled it up and was going to throw it away. I got to him just in time. It's about 8' tall.

 

They're underrated palms, imo. They take forever to grow, too. So that might be part of it.

I'm not usually a contrarian but today I guess I am. When I saw that nice-looking Med palm, I thought, "wouldn't it be even more striking in a cluster of three or so crowns." Well, I guess that's what keeps the nurseries in business!

Their slow-growing habit can also be a plus. I tend to like them with 4-6 feet of trunk and the foliage at or above eye level. I've got some waiting to do for mine to reach that height.

When I bought my Chamaerops, I chose the bluest one out of those that were available. (It wasn't very blue at all.) Since I've brought it home the new growth has been a pleasant surprise; it's quite silvery. Could the reason be that previously it was in some shade  and now it gets a full day of sun?

I do agree that they're underrated. They're tough palms and have a delicacy that is compatible with a lot of different types of gardens.

I like them in all forms! Chamaerops humbles was my very first palm tree and will always have a spot in my garden wherever I live. Sure they don't get height fast, but they do put out a good mess of fronds each season in our climate. Had mine defoliate all save for the first palmate baby frond after 2018 and it still pushed out inflorescence in April as well as had a full crown by mid to late summer. Sadly in early 2019 it succumbed to fungus and the poor placement I put it in due to pure neglect after some family events that I had to focus on. My current chamaerops however has the best placement on my property and aside from some rope lights has not needed protection and is looking just as good as it did in summer!

 

One of my favorite palms for sure!
