Thereof, how tall does a Mediterranean palm tree get?
Also question is, how long do Mediterranean palm trees live?
The lifespan of a palm tree will depend entirely on its species. On average, palm trees grown in tropical or warm environments will live between 70 and 100 years.
How much water does a Mediterranean palm need?
Water the newly planted Mediterranean fan palm deeply every other day, but do not water it if it rains; the ground must drain of water completely between watering. Water the base only, not the leaves, and extend the watering zone about 10 inches past the root ball.
If there are yellowish fronds on a palm for more than three days, that is a sure sign that the palm has a nutrient deficiency. Older fronds that are yellow indicate a potassium or magnesium deficiency. When it comes to pruning palms, the best policy is to only remove totally brown fronds.
Water it weekly, and more frequently when it’s subjected to extreme heat. The Mediterranean fan palm is tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions (clay, loam or sand texture, slightly acidic to highly alkaline soil pH), which is further testament to its hardiness.
European Fan Palm Varieties
Chamaerops humilis ‘Vulcano’: This cultivar is more compact than the main species plant, and it’s known for its lack of spines.
Those free trees are Mexican fan palms, and while they’re at a nice size now, they won’t be in a few years. They will keep growing and growing and growing. There is a reason the Mexican fan palm’s Latin name is Washingtonia robusta.
Mexican fan palm matures potentially to heights twice that of a mature windmill palm, as well as at a faster growth rate. The Mexican fan palm tends to retain its oldest, dead fronds in a downward “petticoat” below the frond canopy.
