Chamaerops humilis var. cerifera is a variety of the deer-resistant European fan palm that hails from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco where it grows up to 5,400' elevation. Instead of green foliage like the species, this variety has powder-blue foliage with silver undersides similar to Brahea armata. Our clumps, planted in 2004, are now 3' tall x 3' wide and survived our cold 2013/2014 winter, losing only the old foliage.
