Chamaerops humilis, or European Fan Palm, is a bushy, medium-sized, single or multi-trunked, evergreen palm with a large, blue-green to silver green, fan-shaped foliage. The panicles of bright yellow flowers emerge in spring, exclusively on mature plants, and are followed by small, round, yellow-orange fruits in autumn. European Fan Palm is the only palm native to Europe and one of the most adaptable species of palms. It grows best in Mediterranean-type climates. It prefers rich, moist, well-drained soils, in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade and poor soils. Very resilient. It can withstand extreme heat and cold, winds, salt, or drought. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Chamaerops humilis is a beautiful specimen plant. If pruned it will grow in a single-trunk form, if not in a shrubby form. It can grow in cold gardens or hot conservatories, coastal or urban gardens, indoors and outdoors. Suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
