Attractive Mediteranean Fan Palms for Your Yard or Container

The Mediteranean Fan Palm is a clumping palm tree, growing slowly to 20 feet high, trunks 4 to 5 inches in diameter , covered with fibrous dead leaf petioles; triangular, fan-shaped blue-grey to green leaves 36 to 48 inches long and wide with spiny petioles

It is a shrub-like clumping palm, with several stems growing from a single base. The stems grow slowly and often tightly together, eventually reaching 16-20 feet tall with a trunk diameter of 4-5 inches.

The fruit is a brown drupe 1/2 - 3/4 inches long.

The McFadden Center of Santa Ana Gets New Entrance Look from Gregory Palms

The McFadden Center in Santa Ana has a new look thanks to Gregory Palm Farms. All the old liquid amber trees were removed and replaced with 11 new Phoenix Dactylifera Majool Palms.

This gave the center an "instant face lift". The Phoenix Dactylifera Date Palms are probably the second most well-known palm after the coconut and this palm produces dates. However, despite this palm being extremely adaptable to differing growing conditions, from hot, dry deserts, to wet tropics, and through to cold-temperate regions, it will only produce dates in the hot, dry climates. It is also very salt-tolerant, making it good for coastal planting.
These trees were the perfect fit for the McFadden Center. Now the center looks clean and up-to-date.

Here are some pictures of the installation.
