This is not one of the more fascinating palms, but there is some variety in its appearance, at least here in California.
This is my simple palm...
But here is a potted palm with very thick, stiff leaves that almost looks like a different species
Looks way different in the sun than the shade: here is sunny grown palm
and here was one grown in fairly deep shade
Some palms are really big
Here is another large one- over 25' tall
And this is another crazy monster
Not always are they so well pruned, though
Sometimes they are planted as though they are solitary palms
And sometimes they are solitary palms
Sometimes they come in different leaf shapes
and different colors, too.. this one is called Chamaerops Green Mound
And this is Chamaerops variety argentea
and last but not least is this great Chamaerops Gold Stripe
and a closer shot of it
