A variation on the Dwarf Fan Palm. Chamaerops 'Vulcano' spouts lava from its... no not really the 'Vulcano' part refers to the island in Sicily where they were first cultivated.
The Chamaerops Vulcano is similar in many ways to its close relative, its hardy, very good in the wind, clump forming and slow growing. The main difference is the compact form and stiffness of the fronds which gives Chamaerops 'Vulcano' very interesting and artful form.
Its slow growth rate, and it's compact growth habit, means Chamaerops Vulcano, like Chamaerops humilis is just about the only hardy palm tree, that keeps so compact. For this reason it makes an excellent specimen in a container, or for usage in confined spaces.
Chamaerops Vulcano requires little upkeep, other than a monthly application of foliar feed from mid-April to September and a little pruning back of old fronds in Spring and Autumn.
Chamaerops Vulcano is a real collectors item, not so much for it's rarity but simply because it's special.
Known as Chamaerops humilis Vulcano or Chamaerops Vulcano or Vulcano fan palm
