Chamaerops humilis in bloom
This plant has become an annual bloomer. This is kind of after the peak (which was in May or June--don't remember now). This one is quite big and prickly. It is containerized--a smaller 'Vulcan' variety of Med. Fan is planted in the front--both are in very hot/sunny locations. I would consider planting it in the ground eventually because it's in the largest tub I have and I don't want it to go into eventual decline being confined to a pot. Just wish I know how to separate all those suckers from the mother plant! Ouch!
