Trithrinax campestris is a hardy fan palm from South America. Tolerant of very cold temperatures and hard freezes, this is one tough palm tree. The glaucous blue / green leaves are edged with sharp spines on the leaf tips and the trunk is covered with old leaf bases that are also spikey – a viscous combination!
This species is extremely slow growing. We are offering seed raised plants in 2L pots. Despite the small size, these are several years old and fully acclimatised to the UK weather. Grow in full sun in a warm spot for best results. Although drought tolerant, Trithrinax campestris enjoys regular watering during the summer months.
