European fan palm is an attractive, multi stemmed palm for indoor use. Extremely low-maintenance is this palm's trademark, with no soil amendments needed when planting and very little pruning necessary to remove dead fronds.
European fan palms are very slow-growing to a maximum height of about 8 to 10 feet. Leaves are grayish-green in color and about 2 feet across at maturity. Because of the sharp teeth or "spines" lining each stem, the European fan is best placed a safe distance from heavy foot traffic. The plant is of high drought tolerance once the palm is established. It's also a moderately salt-tolerant plant so it can handle coastal locations subject to salt spray.
