Chamaerops, also known as the European dwarf palm or dwarf fan palm, is a well suited palm tree for any garden. It is one of the hardiest palm trees available and thus very popular, even in colder places such as northern Europe. It is one of the two palms who originate in Europe – in the Mediterranean. It can also be found in northwest Africa. Chamaerops palm trees are known for their great adaptability and the ease of their maintenance.

Compared to many other palm species, this palm does not grow very large. That can be a big advantage. A palm tree of over 10 metres tall is amazing when you are on holiday, but it might be less practical in your garden. In addition, Chamaerops palm trees can grow and root well in European climates, contrary to many other palms. It can also resist the winters we have here. Temperatures down to -10 degrees are not a problem. It is recommended to protect the palm against excessive water in winters with a lot of rain or frequent frosts or snowfall. Protect the spear (growing point) of your palm, for example by creating a sort of umbrella, by placing the palm underneath a roof or by using water protection. It can resist harsh sunlight (it even loves direct sunlight) but dislikes humidity. Chamaerops palms require at least five hours of direct sunlight and regular watering outside of winter (although it is resistant against droughts). As mentioned before, Chamaerops prefer getting a lot of direct sunlight. The more direct sunlight it receives, the better it grows. It also produces a thin wax layer to protect it against the sun. This wax layer makes the palm look silvery-blue. Rain may temporarily remove this wax layer. All things considered, Chamaerops palms are ideal fan palms to plant in open ground.
