Beautiful, fast-growing palm
Brahea edulis (Guadelupe palm) is an excellent palm and is reasonably frost resistant! It occurs in natural habitat on steep rocky slopes of the North end of Guadalope Island, off the west coast of Mexico and grows to about 10m (30 feet) tall. It's the only Brahea not to have persistant dead leaves. It dislikes high humidity.
This palm is proving quite successful in our warmer winters, some UK specimens having reached trunking size over 10 years. Good sized established plants have been known to survive -6°C and to recover from even lower temperatures! This is generally considered to be the fastest-growing Brahea, and once established its greater size seems to increase its resistance to cold.
Protect from -7°C
