The Dwarf Mediterranean Fan Palm is a selected form of Chamaerops humilis that originated in the Aeolian Island of Vulcano that is dwarf in many of its features: slower growing, shorter in stature, with smaller stiffer leaves.

As with its bigger cousin, Chamaerops humilis 'Vulcano' is variable in the actual size and form of the leaves and, especially, the degree of silver on the leaf underside.

Mature plants of this cultivar are especially beautiful, possessing a compact symmetry that is lost when the form is expanded. A choice garden palm!

GENERAL CARE

Most palms need tropical or subtropical temperatures, but there are some suitable for planting outdoors in the British Isles. Hardy palms are invaluable as structural plants in tropical-style gardens and look effective when planted with bananas, bamboos and New Zealand flax. 

PLANTING

Hardy palm trees can be planted at any time of the year, but ideally it should be done during spring and summer. 

Try to dig a hole a good deal bigger than the root-ball, which should be given a good soak before planting. Back-fill the hole with a free draining mix

Water thoroughly. This will be beneficial to the establishment of the root system. If planting during a dry spell, water the hole first, allow to drain, plant, back-fill, and then water again.
