Brahea armata, Erythea armata, Erythea glauca, Erythea roezlii, Blu Fan Palm, Blue Hesper Palm

Click to see full-size image Brahea armata, Erythea armata, Erythea glauca, Erythea roezlii
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Blu Fan Palm, Blue Hesper Palm
Origin: California, Mexico
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The famous hardy blue palm. Stiff, fan shaped leaves of a stunning pale blue color. Conservatory, or sunny spot in the garden. Rather slow growing, this palm can take quite heavy frosts when mature. However, we recommend that it be given some protection when young. Well drained soil, plenty of water in summer, rather drier in winter, when it can stand -14F or so when larger. It is much happier, and faster growing when planted in the ground. To around 10 feet. Brahea armata likes quite alkaline conditions and may grow faster if lime is added to the soil.

Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Pindo, Jelly Palm
Origin: Brazil
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterPalm or palm-likeEdibleSeaside, salt tolerant plant

One of the hardiest feather (as opposed to fan-) palms, Butia will withstand 14F or 10F when larger. Beautiful blue-green leaves, strongly recurved, make it instantly recognisable. An essential palm for the exotic garden. Tolerant of the weather in high rainfall regions. Also wonderful as a conservatory palm, or even indoors if the light is bright enough. Ultimately it can grow to about 10 or 20 feet, though this will take some years. The fruit from this palm are used to make jelly, hence the name jelly palm. See picture.
