Chamaerops humilis 'Etna Star' is from the same nursery as Chamaerops humilis ‘Vulcano’ and yet another gorgeously compact growing form of the European fan palm.
This retains the spine edged leaf stalks and narrow, strongly divided leaflets of the type but consistently has a strong silvery reverse to the leaf making it, indeed, look like a star when seen from below.
Just as hardy and drought-proof as the others and usefully different in appearance.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease.

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.
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.
