The deer resistant Mediterranean fan palm, Chamaerops humilis has been hardy here in our garden through several winters at 0 degrees F. While the foliage is usually burned off at anything less than 10 degrees F, Chamaerops humilis never fails to resprout, even without any winter protection. Our Mediterranean fan palms have not exceeded 5' high, but size will increase dramatically the farther south it is planted.
