Chamaerops variety

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...
Chamaerops mine green

But here is a potted palm with very thick, stiff leaves that almost looks like a different species

Chamaerops tight in pot

Looks way different in the sun than the shade: here is sunny grown palm

Chamaerops waxy top

and here was one grown in fairly deep shade

Some palms are really big

Chamaerops old

Here is another large one- over 25' tall

Chamaerops super tall

And this is another crazy monster

chamaerops enormous

Not always are they so well pruned, though
Chamaerops unpruned

Sometimes they are planted as though they are solitary palms

Chamaerops singles

And sometimes they are solitary palms

Chamaerops solitaries

Sometimes they come in different leaf shapes

Chamaerops weird leaf


Chamaerops weird 2

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

Wow, thats a lot of variation!!! I think they all look really nice (except the one growing in deep shade).

Thanks for sharing! Pretty interesting! I wonder what causes all the variation?

My biggest one looks like yours.I have 6 of the green Chamaerops palms.4 of them are the same shade of green,2 or darker green.My favorite is the blue ones,mine are ceriferas.I have 4 of them,mine are not as big as the one in your pic.Those big ones with the multi trunks has to be very old.That big and with multiple trunks brings big money,because they grow so slow.I like the Gold Stripe one.I've never seen one like that.Maybe they will start to sell them here on the east coast.Great shows great variations in these palms.

RE: Chamaerops variety

Wow thats alot of variety ive never seen a golden one before.

My favorite one is the seventh one

whats the palm? with the white trunk (crown not vissble) in the fifth picture

RE: Chamaerops variety

palm with white trunk is a 40' tall Ceroxylon ventricosum in Ventura California. Tallest one, by far, in southern California.

RE: Chamaerops variety

Great shots. Thanks. You could never deviate from that one type of plam and yet have a variety. The mult-trunked ones remind of those carnival rides- the Octopus or the Spider?

RE: Chamaerops variety

That is a lovely palm-Thanks again for posting these.(-:
