I was told by an EPS member in Rome that he calls it Chamaerops humilis "Piangente" (weeping as in willow). He posted a photo and the palm looked just like a miniature Livistona decora. He also sent me seeds and a couple weeks ago I planted two seedlings - hope they turn out to be "weepers".

It's just a weepy form. These palms are highly variable. I prefer this type to the stiffer ones. I've got one like this...

I know of one of those weeping form Chamaerops growing in Wilmington, N.C. It is under no stress. It's just one of the many Chamaerops humilis types. I like the look.

Hi Steve, in French literature there is a variety of Chamaerops humilis named duplicifolia. The leaflets split close to the petiole, which causes a plumosa look. I add a photo of my humilis and one of my cerifera with the same caracteristic.

Check out this recent thread for a variety of Chamaerops forms in habitat: Caba de Gata, Armeria. Regional variation such as Volcano(Italian Island), and cerifera(Atlas Mtns.) types are well known but this thread shows the genetic range in just one location. Very nice photo tour.
