Distinctive blue/grey leaved feather palm
Very distinctive and attractive plant with large, blue/grey fan leaves. It grows to 12 m in height. Natural habitat is Rocky canyons, north-western Mexico and California.
Prefers full sun in a dry, very well drained situation. It is very frost resistant, and established good sized plants have been known to survive -10C, or even to recover from lower temperatures when damaged. It grows slowly but steadily and once established is one of the most beautiful and sought after palms in the world.
It reacts very badly to being dug from the ground so it is important to buy pot grown specimens where possible.
