Chamaerops is a genus of flowering plants in the family Arecaceae. The only currently fully accepted species is Chamaerops humilis, variously called European fan palm or the Mediterranean dwarf palm. It is one of the most cold-hardy palms and is used in landscaping in temperate climate
Water regularly during growing season. Do not overwater. There is normally no need to water Chamaerops palms during the winter, only make sure the root ball does not dry out.
Protect from severe frost and cold drying winds. It is one of the hardiest palm trees and one of a select few that will grow well in Southern England. Remove lower leaves as they become brown or tatty. Cut close to the trunk. Repot every two to three years. During growing season top dress regularly with slow release Palm fertiliser. There is no need for fertiliser during the winter period. Avoid high concentration of fast acting liquid fertiliser.
