This palm is quite similar to the more common Brahea armata. ItIt is felt by some to be a natural hybrid between Brahea armata and Brahea brandegeei. It’s considered a “costo-palmate” palm. It loves sun, takes cold to 15 degrees and is blue in color. It gets to a height of no more than 20 feet. Compared to the common Mexican Blue Fan Palm (Brahea armata), it has longer petioles and is faster growing. Another curious difference we’ve discovered is the stem armor. Rather than simple, uniform curved spines, the armor is more like a bad set of shark’s teeth. These are way to big for standard mail order. Presently, this is the only size I have.
