Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm
Distribution & Habitat:
Found in the Atlas mountains in Morocco to about 1700m.
Very similar to the standard C. humilis, except that it has silvery-blue waxy leaves like those of Brahea armata
Sunny, well drained position. Very drought tolerant, and very cold resistant. Will thrive in both Mediterranean climates and sub-tropical ones requiring at least a dry season.
