(Mexican blue palm, Blue hesper palm)
Family Arecaceae
Originating from Mexico, California

This stunning blue palm has a crown of silver/blue, stiff, fan-shaped leaves on long, gracefully arching stems. In the UK it really needs a hot, sunny position to retain this incredible colour, said to be the bluest of any palm. Brahea armata responds well to irrigation and feed in summer.
Like many palms it resents root disturbance, and to avoid transplant shock we recommend sinking the pot into the ground - the roots will gradually break out of the pot. Very hardy, and will tolerate quite severe frost provided it is in well-drained soil. Prolonged frost (below -10 degrees) may cause damage.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 3-4m (in UK)
