Mexican Blue Fan (Brahea armata)
Baja Peninsula, Mexico
Mexican blue (or blue hesper) palm thrives in dry
coastal or desert regions where, despite its slow growth rate, it is prized for
its dramatic canopy of ice-blue leaves and long showy inflorescences (flower
stalks). Attractive in both desert and tropical landscapes, this
versatile palm takes infrequent watering and feeding once established.
Brahea elegans is a similar color but with faster upright growth.
Slow to moderate growing fan palm, native to Baja California, Mexico
Blue-green leaves offer interesting color contrast in any landscape
Equally attractive in desert or tropical gardens
