Blue Mediterranean Fan Palm, Cerifera
These palms have a reputation to be quite cold hardy. In fact, they grow near Assenovgrad, Bulgaria (zone 7b) since 2005 with no protection at all. These are interesting shruby palms for our area. Even after a really bad freeze, they will always regrow from the ground and recover in a couple of months.
As a desert palm, Cerifera needs plenty of sun. When watered and fertilized regularily, they will show an excellent growth.
