    Description

Washingtonia filifera - California Fan Palm

This listing is for a pack of 10 seeds.

Washingtonia filifera palm grows to 18 metres (59 ft) in height (occasionally to 25 metres (82 ft)) in ideal moisture and microclimate conditions.

The leaf fronds are up to 6 feet (1.8 m) long, made up of a petiole up to 2 metres (6.6 ft) long, bearing a fan of leaflets 1.5–2 metres (4.9–6.6 ft) long. They have long thread-like white fibers, filifera-fillaments, between the segments. When the fronds die they remain attached and drop down to cloak the trunk in a wide skirt. The shelter that the skirt creates provides a microhabitat for many small birds and invertebrates.

Washingtonia filifera can live from 80 to 250 years or more. The genus name honors George Washington, the first President of the United States. The plant is popularly honored by its common name and habitat used in naming communities and landforms, such as Palm Springs, California.

Washingtonia filifera is widely cultivated as an ornamental tree. It is one of the hardiest of  palms, is tolerant of considerable frost, and is rated as hardy to USDA hardiness zone 8. It will survive temperatures of -10 °C with minor damage, and established plants have survived, with severe damage to the foliage, brief periods of temperatures as low as -12 °C. It is a favorite of cold-hardy palm enthusiasts. The plants grow best in warm temperate climate with dry summers and wetter winters. Specimens outside of Mediterranean climates do not grow as large, rarely exceeding 15 m.

It also makes an excellent houseplant as it grows quickly and is tolerant of a wide range of conditions (except deep shade).  It is also one of the easiest palms to germinate, often coming up inside a month (full instructions can be downloaded at any time - link on my About Me page)
